The course, Survey of American Indians II, begins in the 1870s, at
the end of the treaty period, and concludes with the problems of
today.  It continues the cultural stories of North American tribal
peoples begun in A310 (but A310 is NOT a prerequisite for A311).
This lecture/discussion course will focus on several issues
including:  reservation life, "Red Progressives", Great Depression
on the reservation, and programs of relocation and termination.  It
will also focus on contemporary social, economic, political, legal
and environmental problems. Grades will be determined from biweekly
quizzes, a midterm and final exam. Readings will be drawn from
required texts and works on reserve. Classes will meet Tuesday and
Thursday evenings from 7:15 to 8:30 in BH 204.
