Class Details

What would it mean to locate indigenous women and their stories at the heart of American history? This advanced junior seminar course answers this question by centering the lives of indigenous women from the pre-colonial period through the present. We will discuss both the historical importance of these women’s lives, as well as the methodological and ethical concerns that arise through the historiographic recovery of their stories. We analyze both canonical figures–such as La Malinche, Pocahontas, and Sakakawea–as well as lesser known historical actors, political leaders, writers, and artists.

DPE Notes: We examine the lives of indigenous women in the Americas across a span of more than 500 years, asking how and why we come to know these stories through archival records, oral histories, popular culture, and autobiographies. By analyzing the interwoven forces of gender, indigeneity, race, and colonization through both primary documents and secondary scholarship, we will work together to cultivate skills of critical inquiry and better understand the role of power in shaping historical narratives.
