Native American Art + Poetry Mash-up!

I'm really excited about this product. Have you ever heard of Wendy Red Star? If not, google her immediately. She's a Native American artist who uses photography as commentary on stereotypes, her culture, and what it means to be a modern Native American woman in America. She has such a great sense of humor and high school students will love the vivid and colorful images she produces. This 1-week Language Arts unit plan combines her artwork with the poetry of Natalie Diaz (Postcolonial Love Poem - also amazing) and asks students to analyze culture and its impact on their works. They'll explore colonization, deculturalization, Native American history, culture, art, and poetry. I think you'll love it.
