HIS 3306 - Indigenous Resistance in Modern Latin America (3)

When Offered: Fall. Even-numbered years
Once nearly annihilated, indigenous people have returned to play an increasingly important role in Latin America. The last decade has shown native influences to national constitutions, environmental protection and human rights as indigenous nations struggled creatively to retain political, cultural and economic autonomy. Students explore ethnic consciousness and resistance to see beyond stereotypes and understand native groups as historical actors. Texts, films and discussions focus on the contradictory way native peoples have shaped state politics and economies within a changing environment.
