HIS 215 - Native America -H

At least 11,000 years before the first European reached the “New World,” the Americas had already been settled. Originally traveling from Siberia, numerous groups of Native Americans established diverse cultures and civilizations across two continents. This course will trace the history of Native America from the migration of Paleoindians across Beringia to the modern day, dealing with issues ranging from pre-Columbian society, European encounters, disease, government removal policies, and the creation of reservations. Students will study religion, culture, warfare, etc. from the perspective of the Natives of North and South America. Special attention will be placed on the indigenous people of the Great Plains.
