Program Description   Tools, documents, and paintings from the collections of the Western Reserve Historical Society (WRHS) in Cleveland and the Cleveland Museum of Art evoke the lives of Native Americans and settlers. An educator from the CMA guide students through an examination of the mutual perceptions between the Native Americans and settlers as well as the historical environment created by their encounters during the 18th and early 19th century. During this lesson upper elementary students participate in a bartering exercise to help them imagine transactions and issues of mutual dependence between the two groups. An in-classroom activity kit accompanies the teacher information packet for the lesson.

Program Format   1. Open discussion with visual analysis of 19th century Hudson River School paintings depicting wilderness and settlements.
2. Contrast perceptions that Native Americans and settlers held about each other.
3. Compare survival needs of Native Americans and early settlers by examining artifacts owned by each group.
4. Conduct bartering interactivity in which students take the role of either Native Americans or settlers and trade items representing, for example seeds, animal skins, and cloth.
5. After bartering, students discuss issues such as fair exchange, communication and mutual dependence which affected relations between the two groups.
Objectives   1. Students will gain an understanding of Native American ways of life through selected cultural artifacts.
2. Illustrate the differing perceptions that Native Americans held of settlers and that settlers held of Native Americans.
