The Lesson I taught for class was centered around the French and Indian War. Even though the Indian tribes played a very important role in the war and its outcome they were barely mentioned within the textbook. The Iroquois were specifically named within the text, but background information and specifics were left out. For instance, the book failed to acknowledge why the Iroquois tribe even sided with the British. Other tribes were not even mentioned and the use of an outside source would be needed to teach this lesson in school.
Today there is still a continued disavowal of the land theft and genocide placed upon the First peoples. Most of Eve Tuck's speech was centered on urban education and the dangers many students face in their education. For instance, she focused on the root of education problems and how this affects students. One example, is that people are disempowered. This has to do with the lack of responsibility towards the First peoples.
