Many people fail to realize the cultural diversity of groups indigenous to the Americas.
This summer, examine the issues of representation and identity in contemporary North American Indian communities, including the role of anthropological interpretation and its impact on the perceptions of Native America.
Drawing on contemporary ethnographic studies, ANTH 326 – American Indian Cultures emphasizes the economic and political adaptations made by Indigenous people through the early 21st century in response to social change and challenges to social justice.
ANTH 326 is a 6-week course offered in Summer Session II. It fulfills the Culture or Social Sciences GEP, and is part of the Culture & Social Justice course offerings. To enroll in this course, you must complete SOCY 101 or ANTH 211 with a “C” or higher.
