C I 2001 - Education and the Eastern Band of Cherokee (3)

When Offered: Fall
This course will examine the evolution of formal education among the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians from the pre-missionary period, through the missionary period of education (1800-1839) and into the modern era. Particular attention will be paid to the uses of education as a tool of acculturation and the federal and state governments’ uses of education as a means to accomplish their agenda towards Native communities. The class will also follow the struggle of the EBCI to attain and protect sovereignty as the concept applies to Cherokee Central Schools.
