ANTH 213 - Peoples & Cultures of Native America


Who are the people native to North America? What has been the role of Native Americans in the formation of “America”? What is unique to their circumstances within a complex state structure and global system? Where do various Native American groups share cultural patterns and where are there differences among them, for example, in origin, environmental setting, world view, family structure, and political system? How do these patterns influence their responses to contemporary issues? This course will explore the issues raised by such questions through detailed historical and ethnographic studies of selected societies.
