FS 015 PZ -Native Americans and Environments

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This seminar examines traditional relationships of several Native American ethnic groups with their environments. Did all Native American peoples formerly live in perfect harmony with their environments, as a common understanding asserts? We will discuss this issue, and the possibility of “environmental determinism” in Native American subsistence practices, patterns of social relationships, religious belief systems, and the arts. We will consider the Inuit, Cahuilla, Hopi, Navajo, Blackfeet, Lakota, Iroquois and Cherokee along with other ethnic groups. [S. Miller, Anthropology]
