History assignment

I’m working on a History question and need guidance to help me study.

As seen the idea of assimilation was seen as the best way for Native Americans to thrive in the United States.

Read: Zitkala-Sa American Indian Stories.pdf

and this on research on assimilation: http://www1.udel.edu/udaily/2012/jan/assimilation-study-010912.html#:~:text=Researchers%20find%20majority%20and%20minority%20groups%20seek%20to%20protect%20their%20own%20identities,-TEXT%20SIZE&text=2%3A33%20p.m.%2C%20Jan.,than%20maintaining%20a%20distinct%20identity. (Links to an external site.)

For this discussion answer:

What was expected of Zitkala-Sa or her family and what methods were used to bring this about? (there are some obvious methods but also look for patterns or more subtle strategies)

Is assimilation the best route to success in the United States, why or why not?

Please make your first post by Thursday and return to this discussion more than once.
