This course offers content that is of the early 19th century and includes content of many groups of indigenous people that were denied equal rights and freedoms. The relationships of white explorers and the indigenous people will be discussed, as well as the inaccurate and misrepresentations of the indigenous tribes written in the journals of Lewis and Clark. Any and all discussion on this topic will be welcomed and encouraged in a respectful and educated manner. It is necessary to provide both view points of the peoples that were impacted, such as the indigenous peoples that lived in the interior of the North American Continent, and the negative consequences, ultimately resulting in the destruction of many cultures.
