Precontact Turtle Island for Junior High
"The early 21st century has seen increased exploitation of energy resources begetting new pressures on Indigenous lands. Exploitation's by the largest corporations often in collusion with local politicians at local, state and federal levels and even with some Indigenous governments could spell a final demise for Indigenous land bases and resources. Strengthening Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination to prevent that result will take general public outrage and demand, which in turn will require that the general population, those descended from settlers and immigrants know their history and assume responsibility."
-Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz from An Indigenous Peoples History of the United States
