So I'm taking this class on Native American history and there's a term paper... we have to think of something to write it on which is not in the textbook...

I'm thinking of doing it on the trade routes but I don't know if that's even doable. If I knew enough about Native American history to think of many topics, I wouldn't have taken the class. Odds are when I'm almost done with my paper, I will have been exposed to a million other ideas that I won't be able to go back and do instead. This happens for basically every term paper I do. By the time I figure out what is interesting, it's too late and I'm stuck with some dry topic I couldn't care less about.

Anybody want to save me? Ideas?
with love,
Oryus

Theories on assimilation vs. warfare for the Lost Colony of Roanoke, with emphasis on the tribal histories of the Lumbee, the Coree, the Saponi, et al?

Thanks very much. Those all seem to be topics not directly covered in the textbook. Noted. :)

I had never heard of the Lost Colony of Roanoke.

The history of the Lenape and the Penn family was always interesting to me.

As God is setting like a sun
And in his place, as lord and slave,
Man raises forth his heinous throne."
