COURSE DESCRIPTION

Indigenous peoples often have very close relationships to particular areas of land or sea, and the species or resources therein. However, definitions of “Indigenous” can be controversial and highly politicized. This course will cover global issues surrounding different conceptualizations of indigenous identities, indigenous worldviews and environmental governance, and questions of resource sovereignty. We will examine case studies from the U.S. and around the world. Required field trips during class time on June 1 and June 8.
