This survey of North American Indigenous Peoples takes a regional or "cultural area" approach to American Indian studies based upon history, geography, anthropology, biography, ethnographic case study and art. It focuses on both diversity of Native Americans and the tenuous links between them. It emphasizes both the unique ecological adaptations and the sociopolitical organization of the native groups that lived in today's Canada, the United States, and the northernmost corner of Mexico. From basic prehistory and the European invasion to the contemporary issues of religion, health and politics, this course gives an excellent overview of the Native Peoples of North America.
