Native American Property Rights: Tangible and Intangible

ANTH 304
Spring 2014
Section: 01  
Course Cluster: Service-Learning

This course will delve into all of the various forms of Native American property rights and recognition across the United States, including the tangible and intangible. This involves an historical analysis from the beginning of treaty-making, prior to the founding of the U.S., until today's most recent Supreme Court cases. Areas covered within this course of study will be federal acknowledgment and the effects it has on business development and putting land into trust; the effects of the designation of tribal lands on the protection of sacred places; an examination of cultural rights and the rights of tribal governments; and a study of the global approach to the protection of traditional knowledge.
