Native American Women in History, Society, and Art

HISTORY 354S

This course will explore the images and realities of Native American women in the history of North America from the pre-Columbian period through the present-day United States. We will concentrate on particular topics including: contrasting ideas of kinship, society, and gender egalitarianism; ways in which gender provided a language for the colonialism of European empires and the US nation-state; experiences of Native women as mediators of cultural exchange and as victims of cross-cultural conflict; and the role of gender in the creation of hierarchies of identity, race, and power.
