THEO 379 - Native American Ceremony and Ritual

3 hours
The study of any aspect of Native American spirituality is a highly holistic and interdisciplinary topic, and draws together materials from disciplines such as history, anthropology, literature, law, and religious studies as well as the oral histories and traditions of the people we will meet. This course examines Native American ceremonies and rituals. The course is a survey of native religious traditions, exploring the breadth and depth of spiritual expression among native people in North America. Assigned readings and class discussions cover a variety of important themes including sacred landscapes, mythic narratives, oral histories, communal identities, tribal values, elder teachings, visionary experiences, ceremonial practices, prayer traditions, and trickster wisdom.

Prerequisite(s): Sophomore standing or consent of the instructor.

This course will satisfy the multicultural core requirement.
