This is an introductory course in the literature of North American Indians primarily in the 20th century. Recognizing that there are literally hundreds of tribal traditions in the Americas we will focus on the mythology history and literature of a handful of indigenous cultures including an extended study of the Spokane and Ojibwa traditions. We will study two authors in depth from these distinctly different tribal backgrounds as we strive to understand the specific effects of geography and history on tribal life traditions and literature.
