1. Were you surprised to learn about the sterilizations of many Native American women, or was it something you had previously learned about? If this is the first time learning about the sterilizations, do you think it isn’t in much of the mainstream media for a reason?
2. Do you see any similarities between the treatment of these Native American women and the treatment of the American Indian children attending the boarding schools in Our Spirits Don’t Speak English? Do you think these women were being unfairly targeted or do you think that the government had legitimate reason to be concerned over the high birth rates?
