NAS 301 - Tribal Critical Race Theory


4 credits
Examines the emergence of Tribal Critical Race Theory (TribalCrit), a synthesis of Native American Studies, Critical Legal Studies, Critical Race Theory, and Critical Whiteness Studies. Explores the intersections of colonization, Indigeneity, race, racism, law, and power to critically interrogate the formation of U.S. Society and its systemic and ideological manifestations that maintain and protect settler colonial privilege and hegemony. Introduces key concepts such as the Doctrine of Discovery, self-determination, reserved/retained rights, and decolonization through the lens of Native Americans who challenge racial orthodoxy, analyze colonial era racism embedded in U.S. law and policy, deconstruct the machinery of whiteness/capitalism, question comfortable liberal premises such as “inclusivity,” and develop research methodologies for reclaiming Indigenous autonomy and wisdom.  Approved for University Studies - Strand I.
Graded (A-F) only
