Hybrid 5-Week Course  | Onsite July 8 -12, 2019 8-11am | Instructors: Dale J. Brooker and Michele Riley

Course Description: This course will focus on the evolution of judicial, legal, and political aspects of Native American communities, from the colonial period to modern day. Through discussions, readings, activities, and assignments, students will explore topics such as tribal sovereignty, foundations of restorative justice, inter-tribal and governmental relations, and tribal court systems. In addition, students will examine the different legal philosophies and goals of tribal justice in contrast with the American judicial system. Although the course will examine these topics through a socio-historical lens, students will have the opportunity to analyze how these past relationships, policies, and laws have developed the contemporary Native American judicial structure and policy. Finally, students will have the opportunity to select a particular interest in the tribal justice system and complete a presentation using primary and secondary sources to provide content.

Course fulfills one Humanities Elective, History (HY) Elective, or Nature and Society (NAS) Elective.
