It's a good opportunity to explain that "American" art is an artificial label and labels can be exclusionary...MS and HS students will definitely relate to that! Start with the work of indigenous peoples from all of North America, then show the art of Jaune Quick to See Smith and other contemporary native artists, compairing their artistic styles and sensibilities with other contemporary artists who come from European, Asian, Latino and other backgrounds. Have the students reflect on how culture colors and shapes personal belief systems and viewpoints. That should put them on the path you want, regardless of the medium you choose for their projects.
