HIST 511 American Indian History

3 hours


This seminar will focus on North America's indigenous history up till 1890.  Topics and readings will span the continent, incorporate Native relationships with a number of Euro-American empires, and cover chronology from pre-contact to the end of the 19th century.  The history of North America's indigenous inhabitants is a complex network of thousands of distinct and unique peoples.  Thus, we will attempt to simultaneously represent the diversity in Native history and identify general themes of Native experience.
