Taught by

This course is designed to explore the foundations of interdisciplinary study, critical thinking, close reading, research & methodologies, and the intersection of Euro-centric and Indigenous pedagogy (teaching method/practice), paradigm (worldview), and praxis (theory + action). Students will expand their academic writing through process and craft, as well as integrate research into their work.  Through the indigenous lens and framework of balancing academics through the medicine wheel: mind, body, heart, and spirit, students will examine their individual worldview to critically analyze text, film, art, and music. Course content will be indigenous and western to illustrate and foster cross-cultural learning. Students can expect to participate in a service-learning component to engage and implement community building, weekly writing reflections, practicing elements of research and academic writing, and exercise the tools of effective communication.

The course is an inclusive learning environment and open to all levels of students. This is a course for students interested in indigenous studies from a holistic educational foundation.
