Anthropology | Native American Identity Politics
E400 | 28631 | Gilley


Native American Identity Politics examines the ways late liberal
settler logics influenced the ways in which "American Indian" came to
be an identity in the US.  The course materials place highly local
ways of knowing oneself in conversation with national level tribal
identities and more general notions of indigeneity.  We will engage
theoretical and ethnographic sources to understand the ways in which
knowing oneself is entangled in political, social and community level
struggles.
