show description

This course explores contemporary issues of indigenous peoples throughout the world. Today, even as

virtually all nations in the world have voted in favor of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous

People, Indigenous communities, tribes and nations continue to confront a range of issues that challenge

their ability to maintain their cultures, govern themselves, and decide their futures. Through films,

literature and social science readings, this course looks at those issues, and focuses on how indigenous

peoples are actively working to oppose their oppression and create sustainable futures.

Designed as a capstone course for the Indigenous Studies Undergraduate Certificate program, the course

enrollment is limited and the course is intensive both in the amount of reading and discussion

participation and in the level of analysis expected.

Topics include: Colonialism, Indigenous People and Nation States, Human Rights, Political

Sovereignty/Autonomy, Gender, Land and Territory, Resource Extraction, Migration, Incarceration.
