Consequences of Checkerboarding

Students examine the Dawes Act and how it offered to turn Native Americans into farmers on land previously used for reservations. In groups, they discover the concept of checkerboarding in which whites own most of the land in reservations today. To end the lesson, they research the ways tribes are trying to get their land back.
