  • The goal of this seminar is to give the student a broad understanding of the situation of Native Americans in the United States and Canada today, while stripping away many of the stereotypes which are held about this group of peoples, both in North America and in Europe. The student should come away with an understanding of the vibrant and continuing nature of the societies and cultures of this once so-called "disappearing race". The seminar will be divided into two parts. The first will look the development of modern historical relations between Native Americans and the various European/American entities with whom they had to deal, i.e. the British, U.S. and Canadian governments as well as organizations such as the Hudson�s Bay Company and missionary societies. In the second part, we will look at contemporary Native American society and the particular issues which are of relevance to this unique community. These will include cultural issues (e.g., education, freedom of religion, language preservation), economic issues (reservation economic development, the impact of gambling, unemployment), legal issues (tribal self-government, land claims) and social issues (alcoholism, drug abuse, etc.). A broad range of materials will be used. Written materials will include contemporary works of fiction, as well as scholarly studies by both Native American and Euro-American scholars in the fields of anthropology, sociology, history, and others. There will also be video material, primarily documentary in nature. This will enable us to focus our discussion on certain issues and themes as well as give the student a better feel for how Native Americans experience life.
