Schools and missions when it came to translating the various works into Native languages.  Explain what ethnocentrism is and how it affected policies regarding Alaska Native languages.  What is the current status of Alaska Native languages (be specific) and how do you feel about this.  What do you think should be done about this situation?

2.Research the Amaknak Bridge Site in the Aleutians.  Please describe where the site is, who excavated, how old it is, and what’s been found.  Why is the site so important?  Please  discuss some of the archaeological discoveries that have been made.  What is the controversy regarding this site.  What are both sides of the argument.  Who do you agree with and why?  Include some photos (from online) about the dicoveries made.
3.You were assigned the movie, “Mystery of the Aleutian Mummies”.
