HIST 333 - Native Americans’ Frontiers


After 1500 the indigenous peoples of North America found their world turned upside down. European exploration, trade, and invasion brought epidemics, radical cultural changes, and loss of power, autonomy, and land. Some groups fell quickly under this barrage, while others survived by virtue of their location, power, or adaptability. This class looks at native peoples before contact with Europeans, the motivations and goals of the invaders, and the common ground and conflicts that shaped their encounters.
