    American Indian Sovereignty Syllabus

    American Indian Sovereignty Syllabus

    Overview

    This 16-week course examines Native American sovereignty from the perspectives of Historical Studies and Anthropology. It covers the history and unique position of American Indian Nations in relation to American political systems, as well as the politics within these indigenous groups as independent nations. The Historical Studies perspective will focus on understanding the historical context of Indian-White relations, while the Anthropology perspective will explore the variety of Native American perspectives on these relations from within their own cultures.
