2ND 8 WEEKS COURSE - S & H, and  CSA credit

Indians of Indiana provides an introduction to the histories, languages,
and cultures of the two principal Native American Nations of Indiana, the
Miami and the Potawatomi.  The course takes an ethnohistorical approach,
seeking to understand the past and present of these communities in their
own terms by combining information derived from Native American sources
anthropological research with the results of work with documentary
material.  The focus throughout is on the historical development of the
Miami and the Potawatomi as contemporary peoples with a distinctive
cultural heritage.  Work for the course will include four quick quizzes,
two response papers, and a final exam.
