Delicious Bookmarks by Shana Brown
In each of the STI Units there are several websites that may be used to supplement lessons. Instead of having a very large handout wit all the online resources listed with complicated URLs (web addresses), I have created a bank of websites that will be useful to teachers. This collection is available to anyone on the Internet and is housed in a site called “delicious” (you might see the name in this format as well: de.lic.ious). “Delicious” is a social bookmarking service that allows users to tag, save, manage and share web pages from a centralized source.

Students will realize that the term ‘treaty rights’ refers to the guarantee, by treaty, of pre-existing Indian rights, as opposed to special rights given or granted to them.
