Course Description for Native Southerners

AMH5587: Native Southerners

Description: This seminar examines key themes in the history of Native Americans who lived in the Southeastern United States from the late Mississippian period (1500s) through the Removal era (1830s) and into the present. We pay particular attention to the South as Native-controlled space and to Native strategies of survival and innovation in the face of enslavement, war, epidemics, migration, and forced removal from their homelands. Students will be trained in reading primary sources through Indigenous lenses.
