Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Native American Religion
Read the article, Indian Prisoners Claim Spiritual Needs Ignored. Then, respond to the following questions:
Should Native Americans be able to perform their ceremonies in prison? Do prisoners give up all rights when they enter prison? Does this include the right to practice their religion? Does this apply to all prisoners, or just to Native Americans? Give another example of what might be religious discrimination in our own country.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. By Day 7, respond to at least two of your classmates who have expressed an opinion that differs from yours. Does their discussion of this change your opinion on this subject? Why or why not?
The Ashford Writing Center (AWC) has two kinds of tutoring available to you.

Live Chat will be available Monday through Friday from 10:00-11:00 am and 4:00-5:00 pm (PST). AWC Live Chat Email Paper Review – If you have a draft, partial draft, or even if you’re having trouble getting started, you can complete a submission form and email your paper to the AWC for review.
