SOAN 297 - Introduction to Indigenous Americas


This course offers an overview of indigenous groups in North and South America, including the history of indigenous people and the struggles of particular groups today. As with other anthropology courses, an emphasis is placed on understanding native perspectives. Although the course does not exhaustively cover all of the hundreds of Native American groups in the Americas, it does include discussion of groups in a variety of regions, such as the Midwest (including Mississippian culture), the U.S. eastern seaboard, the U.S. Southwest, the North American Great Plains, Alaska, Mesoamerica, the Andean Highlands, the Amazon, and South America’s Gran Chaco. As a 200-level class in the anthropology track of the major, this course is also designed to help build critical-thinking skills.
