RELG 207 Native American Religions

This course explores the rich diversity of Native American religious practices that existed before first contact, and those that evolved when Christianity began to spread. We will read Native American myths and stories from around the continent and also research individual tribal traditions. We will seek to understand ancient native rituals such as the Sun Dance as well as those movements that arose in response to Christianity such as the peyote cult and Ghost Dance. The course's Methodologies include the following: a historical perspective from pre-contact to the modern era; a narrative approach to story cycles at the genre, tribal, and regional level; an anthropological analysis of ritual, finally, a biographical approach will reveal how the many dimensions of Native American religion come together in the life of a signiricant practioner.
