SOC 078 PZ -American Indian Movements

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course examines Indigenous resistance to ongoing settler colonialism in North America, with attention to institutional change, ethic group formation and decolonizing action. This version will focus on education as a dimension of colonization, the principles and recovery of indigenous knowledge systems, the nature of human’s place within, and relationship to, the natural world within Indigenous cultural views, symbolic incorporation of those understandings into various artistic expressions, and the holistic integration of these understandings of the natural world in indigenous educational pedagogy. Learning will involve collaborations with Semillas, a Los Angeles community-based high school led by Indigenous Mexican educators.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
