NPP: Seascapes and Landscapes is a program designed to examine the sea and land in relationship to Indigenous communities. By exploring the historical and current usages and issues, including Federal, state, and Tribal laws and policies, treaty rights, and tribal sovereignty, the natural environment will posit as an integral piece of Indigenous culture, not separate from the people who live on or from it. We will focus on the Pacific Northwest and work from a place-based framework, studying the impacts of settler-colonialism and the Hudson Bay Trading Company on the land and its original peoples.  By comparing archival and contemporary documents, oral stories, origin stories, and case studies, students will be exposed to a myriad of perspectives and ways of knowing. Topics will include: Food Sovereignty, Environmental History, and Cultural Sovereignty. 

Required technology to be successful:  computer or equivalent, internet connection, access to Canvas and Zoom. Synchronous (live on Canvas/zoom) hours for all core NPP programs are estimated at 7 hours and asynchronous hours are estimated at 5 hours per week.   Our approach will emphasize participation in synchronous sessions; however, if students find themselves unable to participate due to technology, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they can work with the NPP Director and faculty to pursue alternate options to earn program credit.
