Register Now for “From Columbus to Wounded Knee: Native Americans in the Post Colonization Era–Part 2”

Community University Studies is offering “From Columbus to Wounded Knee: Native Americans in the Post Colonization Era–Part 2” at St. Andrew's Village, Bristol Court Dining Room, beginning April 4, 2014.

This course will provide a general survey of cultural history and cultural area characteristics of Native Peoples of North America. Within this framework, we will pursue three broad trajectories: a historical two-part tread that will focus on the diffusion of Native culture to Europe and the European vanquish of indigenous cultures in the Americas. A second track will investigate how Native peoples in the contemporary period are attempting to protect their traditional ways of life through maintaining a close symbiotic relationship with the environment and their culture. And finally we will compare and contrast the Native world view with the so-called "technological society" world view in an effort to help clarify the dominant culture's historical path in the 21st century.
