This course is an introduction to the anthropology of Native North America. In it we will explore the social, linguistic, and cultural diversity of the indigenous peoples of this continent through both early ethnographic descriptions and contemporary ethnographic accounts. By doing so, we will learn about the concepts, theories and methodologies that have developed within the anthropology of Native North America, and learn to critically evaluate the ethnographic practices employed. Topics include theories about the colonization of American Indians, problems of representation, struggles over land and resource management, and the politics of revitalization. Grades will be based on class discussion, short writing assignments, and three exams.
