American Indian Holocaust? - HSTY3704

Year - 2019

The collision of European and Native American cultures initiated a profound transformation in world history, altering the way we think, live, and even eat today. Yet for many the confrontation can only be seen as a period of traumatic genocide. We will examine the debate over the consequences of these encounters and explore how different groups of Indians responded to challenges between 1492 and 1800. We'll try to comprehend the tremendous changes during this period, but also the resurging presence of Indians today.
