While there is widespread interest among many non-Natives about the religious traditions of indigenous people, Native communities are becoming increasingly hostile toward non-Natives who seek knowledge about Native spirituality. This course will introduce students to the issues and controversies surrounding the study of Native religious traditions and will prepare them for further study of Native religions in a manner that is sensitive to the needs and concerns of Native communities. Issues to be covered include the relationship between the Christianization and colonization of Native communities, spiritual appropriation, spirituality and political activism, Native religions and public policy, and contemporary debates surrounding Native religious identity. This course will provide a foundation for students who wish to pursue in depth studies of indigenous religious traditions.
