HIST 382 - Many Nations: American Indian History, Precontact to 1840

Examines the experience of North American Indians from their earliest origins to the creation of Indian Territory and removal of First Peoples in the 1830s and 1840s. The course focuses on the ways in which American Indians constructed their societies before European contact; regional and cultural diversity among the First Peoples; how Native Americans received the European newcomers during the era of exploration; how they negotiated the power dynamics between their own cultures and those of the Europeans; and how they maintained or modified their cultural identities as a result of their interactions with whites.
