HIST 215H - History of American Indians

Credits: Four (4)
Prerequisite: Membership in Bascom Honors Program
This class will introduce honors students to the history of American Indians in the United States. The course will look at the history of Indian-white relations from 1600 to the present, with special attention to the twentieth century. The course will stress what native groups did to maintain their unique identities, despite the fact that their way of life changed after the coming of the European-Americans. The course will emphasize the “Indian voice” since tribal people have played a large part in the making of their own history. Honors students will read novels and histories, see films, and do research about American Indians.
