ES 350 - Native Americans and the Environment
Instructor: Brian Klopotek
Term: Winter 2016
This course considers themes that include environmental racism, tribal culture, effects of colonialism on Native Americans, and Native American relationships to the land and to animals. It does so through explorations of the impact of colonial displacement, mining, cultural effects of prejudice, intolerance, and discrimination for Native Americans, but also Native American responses. These include political and legal responses, but also those based in traditional culture and spirituality.
