AIS 340 A: Summer 2013 A-term
The Health and Wealth of Native Nations
How might health and wealth be imagined through a different paradigm? What for instance, are the relationships between American Indian and Alaska Native families, peoples, their land and their traditional economies? How is cultural/spiritual, physical/mental, and economic health imagined differently in Indian Country? How have Native peoples perceived their own definitions of family, of community and of health? How and why is a present “healing” of Native individuals and families articulated to a revitalized land and community that extends to include so much more?
All are welcome, including non-students, during summer quarter. Tuition charges apply; the ACCESS program allows Washington residents 60 years or older to attend class as auditing students for a $5 registration fee.
