ES 338: American Indian Experience

Summer 1 (online)

This course provides a comprehensive look at the indigenous foundations of life and societal development in the Americas to the ethical importance of contemporary indigenous rights issues. Although largely marginalized in the annals of Euroamerican history, we find that the American Indian experience and influence are still prevalent in many parts of the hemisphere today.

Students will do assignments and write papers contextually within certain time frames and with attention to their own native backgrounds or groups they are interested in.

Fulfills the general education requirement: DH, ETH, WI
