This course begins with the origins of various tribes and a survey of ancient, pre-colonial civilizations in North America. Conflict and survival during European colonization are examined in detail as well as tribal responses to rebellion within the British Empire. Intertribal alliances and the United States Removal Policy warrant special attention, including the relationship between colonization of western territories and the U. S. Civil War. Government assimilation policies, intertribal activism and government reorganization of tribes will also be discussed. Native experiences during World War II and postwar activism will conclude the course. Social, political, economic and geographic diversity within and between tribes will be discussed throughout the course as will the struggle between colonization and decolonization. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
