Join us at the table and explore America's story in the words of those who lived it.

One Document, One Hour: "The Dawes Act"

March 2, 2021, 4:10 PM CT - 5:15 PM CT | Hosted by: Oklahoma Council for the Social Studies *HELD ONLINE

We’re excited to announce One Document, One Hour, a new series from Teaching American History. If you’ve ever wanted to discuss history with a group of like-minded people, these seminars are for you! In each session, we’ll discuss one great American speech and its lasting effects on our politics and culture. With only one document to read beforehand and one hour of discussion, participation has never been so simple. 

Dig deeply into this critical document related to tribal lands and Native Peoples rights. In this one-hour program we will discuss the formation of, context around, and impact of this law.

All attendees of this free Seminar will be provided with a certificate for continuing education and a digital copy of the agenda and document

Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
