This course is an introduction to the history of the Native peoples of North America. It will make the point that indigenous people in North America possess a shared history in terms of their response to European colonization, and the emergence of the nation-state. But, Native peoples also possess their own distinct histories. Accordingly, this course will offer a wide-ranging survey of cultural encounters between Native peoples and European and Euro-American empires, taking into account the many different indigenous responses to colonization. This course, however, will move beyond the usual stories of Indian-white relations that center either on narratives of conquest and assimilation, or stories of cultural persistence. We will take on these issues, but we will also explore the significance of Native peoples to the formation of modern North America. This will necessarily entail an examination of race formation, and a study of the evolution of social structures and categories such as nation, tribe, citizenship, and sovereignty.
