NAS 30.12 Native Americans of the Southwest: Realities and Representations

The course focuses on the past and present cultures of the Rio Grande Pueblos, Navajos (Dine), Apaches (Inde), Zunis, and Tohono O'odham, and explores such issues as spirituality, language and culture, environment and landscape, kinship and sociopolitical organization, cultural continuity and change, and sovereignty. It also looks at how American visitors, residents, and anthropologists have imagined, understood, and represented these Native people in a variety of ways. Both the biases and insights of their perspectives are discussed and compared with the ways that indigenous tradition-bearers, activists, and academic scholars have represented their own cultures through storytelling, visual arts, museum displays, and various forms of writing.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
