Course Description

Professor Bearden will survey Native American history from the 18th century to the present. Cross-cultural interaction between Native Americans, Africans, and Euro-Americans will be a major theme. After an overview of Native American culture, Professor Bearden explores the role of Native Americans in the American Revolution, efforts at assimilation such as the notorious “Civilization Program,” The Trail of Tears as well as other removals from traditional lands, and life on the Great Plains. The Red Power movement, and Native American life today conclude the survey. That’s a lot of territory to cover. Don’t miss this crash course on the history of the Americans who were here first.
