ES 241 - Native American Studies: Consequences of Native American & European Contact
This course deals with Native Americans and Alaskan Native cultures and history, both prior to and immediately following, contact with Europeans during the past five hundred years. The course is divided into two general segments: First, the course will explore Native cultures in their traditional settings, before the arrival of outsiders. It surveys the great diversity of lifestyles, belief systems, languages, social and political structures, and creative expressions, which characterize the numerous tribal communities of the North American continent. Second, the course focuses on the major European encounters with native societies, beginning with the expedition of 1492 and extending into the Twentieth Century. The disparate responses and resistance strategies of various indigenous populations confronting the ideological and physical intrusion of Europeans is studied.
