Understanding that there is no single “Native American” perspective, this program explores Native American histories and cultures through varied Native community experiences and points of view. This multi-disciplinary curriculum, which is open to all undergraduate students, is aimed to lead you to:
- An informed comprehension of Native American histories and distinct Native American colonial experiences;
- Insightful consideration of varied Native American social, cultural, and political perspectives, including contemporary community priorities;
- Scholarly appreciation for Native American arts and literature as tools for cultural interpretation; and
- A deeper understanding of ancestral and contemporary Native American communities on the Columbia Plateau and Gonzaga’s intellectual and spiritual connection to this homeland.
