“Native stories are power. They create people. They author tribes.”
– LeAnne Howe, “Tribalography: The Power of Native Stories”
Designed to serve as a preparatory entry to the American Indian and Indigenous (AII) Minor, this course is open to all aspiring English majors and students pursuing the AII Minor. We feature the power of story as a maker of culture, deep knowledge of American Indian and Indigenous histories, and culturally informed reading practices. In addition to learning the history and the narrative sinews of peoples, English 34 NA includes novels, stories, comics, poetry, music, visual art, film, and memoir – honoring a deep drive into some of the most vital creative work of the late 20th and 21st centuries. Authors include, but are not limited to Roanhorse, King, Miranda, Hogan, and Orange.
