Did you know that one of the first basketball teams to be declared World Champions was a group of Native American women in 1904? That the greatest Olympian of all time was from the Sac and Fox tribal nation? Did you know that some of the best blues musicians of the last 150 years were Native Americans? Did you know that the Twin Cities are a hotbed for Native spoken word poetry, hip-hop, visual art, and theater? Did you know that the Twin Cities are the starting point of one of the most influential political groups of the 1960s and ‘70s, AIM, and that spirt of political protest is alive and active today? Using Dr. Philip Deloria’s book, INDIANS IN UNEXPECTED PLACES, as a jumping off point, this class will use literature by Native peoples to disrupt and complicate the existent “Indian” narrative at work in America. Books will address Native American peoples in sport, in music, in art and theater, and in political action. We’ll be reading a mix of fiction and non-fiction, drama and poetry and will be writing about the connections between the words on the page and our vibrant Ojibwe and Dakota nations here in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. This writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.
