This course explores the history of interaction between American Indians and newcomers from 1491 to the present and the impact of these contacts on our culture today.  Students will read historical essays and works of literature from both sides of the culture clash, view films about American Indian history and identity, and participate in a simulation of cultural exchange.  Students will be asked to think critically about historical and cultural perspectives, including their own, and to complete writing and research projects in thoughtful and creative ways.  The goal of this course is for students to gain an understanding of the complexity and fluidity of cultures and cultural exchanges and of the impact of contact on the world today.
