HIST 4402 Natives and Newcomers in Early America (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

During the colonial period, North America transformed from a native place to a cultural melting pot where a variety of American, European, and African peoples vied for control of the continent. This course will examine the transformation of the continent from the perspective of its original inhabitants, viewing the changes in native lives and intercultural relations from the fifteenth to nineteenth centuries. Topics include trade and communication between Indians and Europeans; Indian slavery; transmission of Christianity; conquest and dispossession of native lands; development of political alliances and pan-Indian movements; and Indian policy in the early United States.
