This course will examine contemporary issues relevant to Indigenous peoples around the globe. The course will begin by exploring patterns and themes of Indigenous histories, including the varying impact of European colonialism and settlement. Central to this study is an analysis of land claims settlement issues, the quest for self-government, housing, education, culture, health and various environmental and social issues that Indigenous peoples are facing. The course will move to focus on the contemporary revitalization, repatriation and preservation methods employed by Indigenous peoples and governments around the world. This method of inquiry will afford the opportunity to compare the challenges and aspirations faced by diverse Indigenous communities.
