This course explores Native North American Indigistory, culture, and agency from time immemorial to the present. Framed from an Indigenous perspective, the aesthetic, cultural, and symbolic meanings of traditional and contemporary Native American art, artists and activists illuminate the agency of Native culture in North America. Illustrative examples are derived from a wide array of sources, from ancient art to graphic novels, graffiti, cuisine, couture and contemporary artists.
