“Follow the Corn”, by Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz. List and explain at least two of
the most important characteristics the author states about Native
Americans. For example, you can comment on the importance of maize in the
historical and cultural construction of pre-Columbian and American peoples
(pg. 17), the regions (pg. 17-25), the type of government (pg. 25), etc. In which
way do they relate to the Mexican Americans living in the west side of the
U.S.? Do they share a similar or different story?
