Strahn: Native American Studies
(Strahn: Native American Studies)

Native American Studies is a semester-long, junior or senior-level course with an emphasis on the diverse histories, cultures, and current issues related to American Indians.  This course examines the lives of native peoples in North America from pre-Columbian times to the present day.  A special (but by no means exclusive) emphasis will be placed on Montana’s Indians. To the greatest extent possible, course content will prioritize native voices through primary sources, works of literature and film, and guest speakers.  The common core’s emphasis on student centered learning, higher level thinking skills, and primary source analysis will be emphasized.
