NAMS 122 - Intro Native Am Studies II

The course is intended to provide students with an introduction to Native American Societies in the present- day U.S. from the life and death struggles in the first century of the American Republic, through various government programs that sought to destroy natives' way of life, to the resurgence of native nations with the 1970's. The course will focus on the survival stories of native peoples who defended their ways of life against the U.S. onslaught and reached a point in the 21st century of being flourishing communities dealing with modern challenges while maintaining traditional perspectives.
