American Indian Intellectuals
This course surveys some of the prominent voices in American Indian intellectual culture from the 1960s to the present. The course will examine four "kinds" of American Indian intellectuals in order to make better sense of what an American Indian intellectual is, and more importantly, what does it mean to be part of an American Indian "intellectual culture"? The course will explore the work of tribal leaders, American Indian scholars, artists and writers, and Native women.
Open to sophomores, juniors and seniors. Class of 2007 and earlier: Dist: PHR; WCult: NW. Class of 2008 and later: Dist: TMV; WCult: NW. Turner.
