LC 296 - Learning Community: The Paradox of Sovereignty: Native Nations, Public Policy, and the Politics of Power

Three Credits
Spring Semester

The Paradox of Sovereignty refers to the complex, dynamic relationship between Native American tribes and American democracy. This learning community will explore the questions of who are contemporary Native peoples and how do we understand their place in the larger American polity. Students will examine the legal, social and historical context of Native nations and analyze the complex legal and political relationships within American government. Students will also gain expertise in policy analysis by working with real world clients from Native nations. The combined seminar will offer students the unique opportunities to directly learn from and experience a variety of Native communities locally and throughout the United States.

Corequisite(s): Students must also take   and   as part of this Learning Community.
