EDL 215 Miami Tribe Contemporary Issues 2 (1)

In this course we will introduce and explore the major issues that the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma faces today as a sovereign Nation. These issues will be contextualized with comparisons to Indian Country as a whole as well as to broader global indigenous experiences. In this second semester of the course, we will specifically focus on the global manifestations of nationhood, sovereignty, and self-determination in classic governmental structures, like constitutions, and in locations or activities that are not normally associated with issues of political or economic sovereignty, like art. Through this exploration, we will attempt to develop a framework of comparative indigenous nationhood.

Prerequisite: EDL 115.
