ANT 305 : Indigenous Knowledge in the Americas

This course provides a cross-cultural introduction to diverse forms of knowledge and ways of knowing, focusing on indigenous peoples of America. Our inquiry is guided by three sets of questions: What are indigenous knowledge frameworks and how can we understand them on their own terms? Why are some forms of knowledge viewed as legitimate or even universal, while others are marginalized? How are individuals and groups negotiating and translating indigenous and western forms of knowledge? Not repeatable for credit.
