The @USNatArchives ‘Records of Rights’ of Native Americans – From “Talking Leaves” to Wounded Knee and More | #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth #archives
The David M. Rubenstein Gallery at the National Archives has a permanent display of records “documenting the ongoing struggle of Americans to define, attain, and protect their rights.” These include the rights – and plight to attain those rights – of Native Americans. Versions of those documents are also accessible via the Internet, including high-resolution copies of original documents whose text and story we are all stewards of.
The history of Native American rights is not a progressive march; it’s a story of rights being alternately acknowledged and disregarded. In this struggle, tribes negotiated hundreds of treaties with the Federal Government. Nonetheless, Native Americans lost many rights due to conflicts with Americans and the interests of the Federal Government.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
