This course explores the legal, cultural, historic and political foundations, experiences, perspectives and futures of American Indians in the U.S. An introduction to American Indian studies requires a very holistic and interdisciplinary approach, and draws together materials from a variety of sources. Themes will include issues of multiculturalism, individual and community identity, social justice, Indigenous feminism, sexual orientation, racism, genocide, land ownership, environmental degradation and ways of knowing and learning.
