This course broadens the scope of U.S. history to include the complex societies that predated European colonization and uses interdisciplinary methods to revive the histories of America's diverse Indigenous populations before removal became official U.S. policy and the reservation system restricted Native American mobility and sovereignty. We will consider in depth the ways in which historians and museums have presented pre-Columbian and colonial Indigenous history to the public and the approaches with which we can recover marginalized perspectives. (Offered every other year.)
