Fiction, myth, personal narrative, even film and song--contemporary American Indian writing takes many forms but they all provide windows into the lives and dreams of America's forgotten minority. Among the themes we will explore are life on the rez, creation myths and vision quests, dealings with the white world, and reclaiming the past. In addition to reading and writing about the stories and poems in the texts, you'll get to see three great films, Dreamkeeper, Skins, and Smoke Signals. COURSE MATERIALS Nothing But the Truth: An Anthology of Native American Literature--Purdy and Ruppert The Woman Who Fell from the Sky--Joy Harjo The Way to Rainy Mountain--N. Scott Momaday Three DVD's: Dreamkeeper, Skins, Smoke Signals--The bookstore will not be stocking these DVDs but you can buy all three from Amazon for less than $20 total. Because this course is designated D1, it will help you fulfill the Cultural Diversity requirement.
