NATIVE NORTH AMERICA TODAY: PEOPLE, CULTURE AND SURVIVAL

This course, while assessing anthropology's long-term relationship with Native North America, primarily presents an opportunity for students to engage with the representation of contemporary Native cultures (and identity) through ethnographic reading and study. This will be accomplished through autobiographic, ethnographic, and medical anthropological literatures (and other media forms). Students will be asked to react through discussion, writing, and examination.
