Whitman College Course: English 246A: Native American Literatures (Course or Curricular Materials)
Title: Whitman College Course: English 246A: Native American Literatures
Author: Christopher Leise
Abstract: This course will help you think about three distinct traditions of American Indian writing—those of the Haudenosaunee, Kiowa, and the Columbia Plateau peoples—not as representative of “Native American Literature,” but as discrete entities from among the more than six hundred nations indigenous to the land mass we presently call North America. Though such work may unsettle your hopes to draw conclusions about “Native American” thinking and self-expression, I hope it will put you in a stronger position to learn how to learn about an indigenous national literary history.
Year: 2018
