Course Description:

*Take this new class to learn about environmental issues faced
by tribes in North America.* You will learn about the environmental
pollutants that are impacting tribes. You will participate in lectures and
discussions, read key literature, meet guest speakers who work on
environmental issues with tribal communities, and work as a team to create
a much needed website that explains and documents these important issues to
the public.

The overarching goals of this course will include an
examination of the U.S. policies relevant to protecting communities from
environmental pollutants occurring on the homelands of Indigenous peoples,
the health implications of exposure to contaminated ecosystems, and case
studies that illustrate strategies for how indigenous communities are
working to address these issues. It will aim to build critical awareness
about environmental problems.
