PVSC One-Day Event: NATIVE AMERICAN STUDIES 101 Register View Cart

Dr. Lisa Neuman will introduce the field of Native American studies and talk about some demographics of the tribes, regional differences and similarities across the U.S., with special attention to the Wabanaki tribes of Maine. In addition, we will consider how Native Americans are perceived and represented in the media and popular culture. The class will be interactive, and there will be many chances to ask questions.
