Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies
Indigenous peoples often have very close relationships to ancestral homelands, species and natural resources. However, definitions of “indigenous” can be controversial and highly politicized. Diverse outlooks on identities, worldviews and environmental governance clarify the complex meanings of indigeneity in the United States.
This course highlights American Indian perspectives, conservation practices, and policy environments through consideration of U.S. and international case studies. American Indian experiences shed light on pressing issues of resource sustainability and sovereignty, and demonstrate linkages to global Indigenous environmental issues and strategies.
