ANT 322M • Indians of the American Southwest
12:30 PM-2:00 PM
This course considers the cultures and histories of the indigenous peoples of the Southwestern US from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Throughout the course we will be concerned with the representation, interpretation, and incorporation of Southwestern Indians within the dominant culture, but we will also consider indigenous cosmologies and rituals, languages and expressive forms, gender roles, survival strategies, and self-representations.
