I know a lot of First Nations people.  They all call themselves Indians, or NDNs.  Maybe your homeschool co-op should do a unit on First Nations tribes, and other Nations around the world/...

Yep, super easy.  I have near-photographic memory and can mentally build things in 3d.  And not just blocks.  Fluid, organic shapes, and moving parts sweeping out.
