Despite the growth of Native American Studies in recent decades, the
voices of Native women too often remain muted. In this course, we
will explore the ways in which culture and history have shaped
Native women’s experiences. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, we
will read work by historians, anthropologists, and folklorists, and
incorporate Native women’s perspectives via autobiography,
literature, and film. Discussion is an important component of this
reading-intensive course. Student evaluations will be based on class
participation, reaction papers, and two essays.
