(ARCH, SOCI)
PEOPLES & CULTURES: NATIVE AMERICA.  This course offers anthropological and interdisciplinary perspectives on a wide range of contemporary issues impacting Native American communities. Some of the topics we will explore include settler colonialism, Indigenous identity, federal and tribal law, the politics of representation, media, art, cultural appropriation, race, gender, class, and sovereignty. In all these cases, we will situate what we learn in political and historical context. You will come to learn about the cultural diversity of different Native American nations, peoples, and communities including how they have created, confronted, and resisted particular histories and politics over time.
