RELS208 - NATIVE AMERICAN REL/LIT

"Native American Religion and Literature" will explore the spiritual dimensions of three tribes-- Ojibwe, Cherokee, and Sioux-- using an interdisciplinary focus that includes literature, religious studies, film, and anthropology. We will focus on masterful stories in which Cherokee people turn into bears, thunderbirds talk, and invisible forces are made visible. Rather than seeing these stories as "myths" they will be treated as highly sophisticated forms of philosophy. The class will include two 7-8 analytic essays and one shorter, more descriptive paper.
