ANTH 3530 Arts of Native North America

A survey of the great range of media and the many forms of aesthetic expression developed by the indigenous peoples of what today are the United States and Canada. The course examines the functions of art in smaller-scale societies and illustrates aspects of their dynamics. Changes in arts due to European contact, attempts at revivals of specific genres, and the emergence of named artists in the 20th century are also addressed.
