Print Page Report a broken link

(5 credits)

In this course, students work toward developing a modern and inclusive understanding of indigenous peoples of the world. They explore indigenous identity; historical continuity with pre-colonial and/or pre-settler societies; indigenous identity in relation to natural resources; and indigenous languages, cultures, and beliefs. Students complete a series of weekly field note assignments in which they address topics or themes related to the exploration of their own indigenous identity. Through this course, students gain the knowledge needed to explain processes of indigenization, adaptation, and communication as phenomena of globalization.
