AMIND141 WK10 Occupation Alcatraz and American Indians


Hi, I need you to read through 3 attachments and watch a 26 min documentary in order to write the first 300 word minimum discussion post. I will attach the 3 stuff for you to read, they’re all short (2-3 pages each) then ill give you the link for the youtube video (26 min) for u to watch before writing the post. I will also attach another document titled (discussion reply) where you will need to read it and write a reply (minimum 150 word reply) to that post. The discussion that is 300 words plus and the reply that is 150 words plus must be submitted in two different attachments when you give them to me. This is for a really good university so do not play around and give me a bad grammatical essay and you must read and watch everything I give you. If I receive a bad grade on the assignment I will contact study pool to let them know about it and get a refund. So take this seriously.

To reiterate so you cannot get confused. I am paying you for 2 assignments. One assignment is 300 words and the second assignment is 150 words which equal a total of 450 words. Which is why I am paying for 500 words total.

For the first assignment you will read the first 3 attachments I give you and watch the 26 min documentary in order to properly write the discussion post.

The prompt is: For this week’s discussion blog, we will draw on materials from both Modules 9 and 10. Please answer the following questions:

1. Discuss how the American Indian Civil Rights movement emerged based on materials from Modules 9 and 10.

2. Describe the goals and significance of the Occupation of Alcatraz based on this week’s materials.

3. Discuss this week’s documentary “We Hold the Rock.” What was the trajectory of the Occupation of Alcatraz? What were some major scenes/quotes that stood out to you, and why?

4. After, thoroughly interpret and rhetorically analyze the Alcatraz Proclamation. Consider the following: tone, word choice, historical allusions, intended audience, context etc.

5. Lastly, please share your overall thoughts/reactions to this week’s materials.

Don’t forget that your initial post in response to the prompt must be at least 300 words minimum, and remember to also post a peer response of at least 150 words as well!

For the second assignment I will provide another attachment called “discussion reply” in which you will read the discussion post and write a 150 word plus reply to it.

You must give me both assignments submitted in 2 separate word documents.

Week 10/Module 10: Student Checklist
* Remember, you’ll have from Monday, March 25 through Monday, April 1 at 11:59 pm to complete everything on
the checklist for Module 10.
1. Hey everyone! Welcome to Module 10. Last week, we reviewed the period of the 1930s-1950s to help
us better understand the emergence of the American Indian Civil Rights Movement. This week, we will
continue making connections between last week’s Module 9 as we learn about the Occupation of
Alcatraz in this week’s Module 10. Before moving forward, I recommend reviewing last week’s materials
or your notes, and also take into consideration the readings and materials from last week’s modules to
help paint a fuller picture.
2. To get started with this week’s materials, let’s become familiar with the details of the Occupation of
Alcatraz by reading the article, “The Alcatraz Indian Occupation: We Hold the Rock.” As you read, be
sure to take careful notes that will help prepare you for the rest of this week’s materials and
3. After please watch the entire ~25 minute documentary, We Hold the Rock, which provides a fuller
picture and trajectory of the occupation. Please take careful notes on specific quotes and scenes that
stand out to you, and be considering important connections to our course materials.
4. Once you’ve finished watching the documentary, please quickly read through our final article for this
week, “1969 Occupation of Alcatraz and the Alcatraz Proclamation.” The first part of the article provides
another quick overview of the occupation itself with some additional insight that our previous materials
did not yet cover; however, I’d like for you to pay close attention to the bottom section of the article
with the actual “Alcatraz Proclamation.” Be sure to do a close reading to prepare you for the rhetorical
analysis required in this week’s blog post.
5. Lastly, remember to write this week’s Blog #5 posts. Don’t forget to answer all parts of the prompt
while meeting the 300 word minimum requirement, and then please post a 150 word minimum
response to a peer as well.
6. Remember that next week is Spring Break, and we will have no assignments or required readings due.
Enjoy your well-deserved break! I hope you all use this time to relax, have some fun, and/or take
advantage of the optional extra credit opportunities! We will resume our usual module schedule when
we return for Module 11 starting on Monday, April 8.
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at any time!
Have an awesome week!
1. The American Civil Rights movement emerged because certain rights didn’t apply to tribal
government. Therefore, tribal members were wrongfully punished or incriminated. Also,
Indians wanted to improve the standard of living and gain back their identity. Termination and
Relocation policies left Indians in greater poverty and had little to no federal aids.
2. The significance of the first occupation on March 9, 1964 lead to another significant
occupation on November 20, 1969 where the Indians demanded a cultural center and Indian
university. In the beginning, the occupation was a cohesive movement, but soon become
disarrayed, groups challenged each other, and the government removed the water barge.
Despite the end of the occupation of Alcatraz, the Indians achieved self-determination.
President Nixon returned several acres of land, a Native university was established, and Native
Americans were hired to work in the federal agency.
3. The trajectory of the Occupation of Alcatraz had an abundance of support in the beginning.
As more people become aware of the movement, media interest increased, more Indians
occupied Alcatraz, and people were willing to help their cause. However, the occupation of
Alcatraz lost its spark. People weren’t as supportive, the media loss interest, and the
government took control and removed the remaining Indians. Despite their loss of Alcatraz, the
Indians gained back a sense of cultural identity. A major scene that stood out was when the
boy’s mother told him he was half Comanche, because he is missing out on the other half of his
life. Also, the quote “I had no idea what an Indian was” stood out, because it’s a loss in cultural
4. The tone of voice is demanding because the document gives no room for negotiations. The
word choice resembles past treaties between the US government and Indians; however, the
roles are reversed. The historical allusions referenced are native Americans were the first
people on the land that white men later discovered, Indian lands were cheaply sold, and
Indians were forced to assimilate to American culture. The intended audience is the US
government, and this documentation was written after the Termination and Relocation policies
were implemented.
5. Overall thoughts and reactions to this week’s material is like past materials. It’s frustrating to
witness the many obstacles Indians had to overcome to achieve self-determination. Also, it’s
upsetting to know the US government still lacks integrity.
