This course will examine Native American religious practices in the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. During this period, Euro-American people, beliefs, and legal structures have systematically sought to disenfranchise indigenous peoples by, in part, attempting to control, silence, and legislate against their religious practices. We will learn about the ways that Native communities have fought to maintain their religious traditions and how they have used religion to further their resistance to assimilation.
