Religion and Indigenous Identity Politics
RELI 289
Fall 2012
Section: 01  

From stereotypes about wise old Indians to contemporary U.S. repatriation legislation, religious practice figures prominently in indigenous identity politics around the world. Religion can be profoundly sustaining to native communities and, at the same time, fraught with stereotypes and contradictory demands. This class examines these stereotypes, contradictions, and convictions with empathy and a critical eye.
