Native American Verbal Art: Theory and Method
AMST 332
Spring 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: ANTH 332

This class examines the oral traditions (story-telling, song, chant, etc.) of Native American peoples. The class is broken into two broad sections. The first section deals with the theoretical background concerning the representation, translation and interpretation of Native American verbal art. The second section of the class deals with a wide variety of specific examples of Native American verbal art. The two sections, of course, are not mutually exclusive. Any presentation of Native American verbal art, in the Native language, must engage critically with representation, translation and interpretation.
