Week of 9.3.18: Early America

This week, we will dig more into the earliest days of America. We’ll look at how the first people likely arrived on the continents of North and South America, and then we’ll look at the various people and groups who arrived centuries later, and how they saw themselves and the native inhabitants of America.
