Power, Culture, Continuity and Change in Native America: an Historical Survey
AMST 239
Fall 2006
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: HIST 299

This lecture/discussion course will introduce students to histories of Native peoples in North America, particularly those found within the borders of the United States. The course will rely heavily upon our analysis and interpretation of primary documents and scholarly articles, and we will also explore the role and value of oral history and non-traditional source materials in our study. After we consider the pre-contact and colonial eras, we will specifically examine the histories of four Native communities in order to consider both the broader implications and the local effects of colonialism and federal Indian policy through the 20th century.
