Throughout this semester, we continue to explore two key concepts: 1) Peoplehood, and 2) Settler Colonialism.

Please write an essay that: Identifies one Indigenous people who have been affected by Settler Colonialism (in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Australia or another setting).
***Please write about the Comanche Nation Tribe. Describes key ways in which the four elements of Peoplehood – relationship to place, language, sacred history, and ceremonial cycle – traditionally were expressed by that people. Finally, examine the ways in which Settler Colonialism has historically impacted each of the four elements of Peoplehood.
Additionally, demonstrates the manner in which Settler Colonialism continues to reverberate within the community today. Moreover, discuss how the community has worked to maintain the elements of Peoplehood in the face of Settler Colonialism in the past and/or today.
