Make sure you cite the pages from the text in the summary and or the discussion. You must have five songs and five passages. Example: Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West by Dee Brown. (New York:Holt, Rhinehart and Winston, 1970, 487pp. ISBN 0-03-085322-2) 1. With Arms Wide Open by Creed 2. Run to The Hills by Iron Maiden 3. Great White Buffalo by Ted Nugent 4. Pochohontas by Neil Young 5. American Pie by Don McLean DESCRIBES the monograph and sets it in historical context; ( in at least one paragraph) ANALYZES some aspect of the monograph from a historical point of view (in at least one paragraph); “With Arms Wide Open” by Creed Chapter one of the monograph opens with “Their manners are decorous and praiseworthy” (14) it begins by saying Cristopher Columbus discovers America and its people who live there. The native Americans were peaceful at first with the colonists but after them trying to make them slaves things changed. Soon thereafter the friendships turn to violence that lasts more than 400 years until the native American population is decimated. This songs main chorus is “with arms wide open” which is how the settlers where when they first came to the new world. The song for most of it has a dark tone which I think represents well how the history of the native Americans are after the settlers arrived. The song is a rock ballad so it has a lot of loud instrumental parts which can pair well with the tension that existed soon after confrontation with settlers. Another line in the song saying “ill show you everything” to me this is what the settlers would have said to these native Americans who had never seen guns, jewelry, horses etc. ” Run to The Hills” by Iron Maiden In chapter three of the monograph, “Little Crows War” (50) talks about the Santee tribe whose chief was Little Crow. Their story was one of the first to be the most affected by the white settlers. Many treaties were made in the form of giving up land for payments of money. But the land that was to be kept for the natives ran out of food. During this time the civil war was in full effect and the government was not giving the Indians their money. So after tried attempts to get food the Indians started raiding food houses due to starvation. In the end the Shawnee tribe was mostly killed in battle and the remaining left for small patch of land on a reservation. This song is a fast paced classic rock song with lyrics of two tales. The song starts by saying “he killed our tribes killed our creed” (place a citation using Chicago style, this is a quote from the song) this representing the white man killing the native American’s. But the second verse to the song is the natives attacking the settlers “Woman and children are cowards attack” which represents the natives attacking the white woman and children. This song also has a lot of emotion from the singer which makes the song have more energy to it. The songs chorus “run to the hills” is somewhat true because that’s what ended up happening for many of the native American’s running from the white settlers. Make sure you put a heading and title on your paper, when I state create a mixtape, you will be choosing five relevant songs related to what you have read in the monograph and discuss with citations.
