Native American culture is often misrepresented within American culture. Native Americans have not disappeared, in fact the Native population is on the rise and their culture is being expressed in contemporary movies and music, but not in the ways most Americans expect. This cultural anthropology course provides an overview of Native North American cultures from the time of contact with Europeans to the present day, using both anthropological and Native sources. Special attention is given to contemporary Native American issues and artistic forms of expression. Prerequisite: ANT 200; ENG 101; COM 100.
