Expanded Course Description
This course considers themes that include environmental racism, tribal culture, effects of colonialism on Native Americans, and Native American relationships to the land and to animals. It does so through explorations of the impact of colonial displacement, mining, cultural effects of prejudice, intolerance, and discrimination for Native Americans, but also Native American responses. These include political and legal responses, but also those based in traditional culture and spirituality.

This course satisfies the University’s multicultural requirement for Category B: Identity, Pluralism, and Tolerance (IP) by helping students to gain scholarly insight into the construction of Native American identities, the emergence of representative voices from varying Native American cultural perspectives, and the effects of prejudice, intolerance, and discrimination as they relate to interactions between colonialism and environmental racism. In addition to Native American cultural standpoints, the course also considers social class, gender, and religion as contributing to cultural pluralism and as important factors in shaping identities and informing the emergence of voices in response to prejudice, intolerance and discrimination. This course’s study of traditional and contemporary Native American responses to the environment will also consider general principles underlying the concept of tolerance.
