A general introduction to American Indian spiritual worldviews with attention given to
practices of specific nations in North, Central, and South America. This course surveys what is shared by native peoples with those outside of their tribe and aims to cultivate respect for the ownership, practice, and control indigenous people have of their spiritual traditions. Particular attention is given to the impact of European contact with American Indian nations and the continued struggle for American Indian sovereignty. Visits to the National Museum of the American Indian and other
experiential learning activities are incorporated into this class, with the assistance of
native peoples, to better understand their experience and worldviews.
