Course Description for (CD) American Indian History
(CD) American Indian History
This course examines North American Indian history from the pre-colonial period through the late twentieth century. We focus on understanding how different American Indian nations resisted and responded to the challenges (and opportunities) presented by European colonization, westward expansion, and U.S. federal and state policies. The course studies the diversity of American Indian societies and their experiences, and the historical roots of key issues in American Indian communities today.
