Responding to my recent post on IEFA resources for high school students and teachers, Brian Shovers wrote: “You might want to take a look at a recent interview by Bill Moyers of Sherman Alexie (Spokane Indian poet/writer) on PBS entitled, “Living Outside Tribal Lines.”
In “Resources for Teaching about the Gold Rush,” I provided links to information and lesson plans on Montana’s Chinese. Ellen Baumler pointed me toward two good additional sources:
- An article she published that addresses some myths and gives a good, short overview of Chinese in Montana, and
- a lecture she gave at Fort Missoula, "Montana's Chinese: Our Forgotten Pioneers," that is posted on YouTube
Butte historian Richard Gibson, who’s the mastermind behind the Mai Wah’s blog, has also started a blog for the World Museum of Mining.
Because this is a sort of hodge-podge post, I thought it would be ok to throw in a site related to no recent posting, but which I thought was cool: Lost and Found Montana, a website with videos about 18 towns the Montana Department of Transportation wanted to take off the map.
