This course is designed to help students gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the diversity of the Native American experience today and in the past.

From creation stories, to the book acclaimed as the first Native American novel (Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko), to the controversial essays of Lakota scholar Vine Deloria, and spoken word of John Trudell, students will explore the meaning and significance of community, ceremony, healing and storytelling. Other authors include Suzan Shown Harjo (Cheyenne/Muscogee), Wilma Mankiller (Cherokee), and Linda Hogan (Choctaw).
