Course Overview

“What shall be done with the Indian?’” asked in 1930 a perplexed government official in search for the answer to what became a perennial question. By then, the policies that previous administrations had pursued created an existential crisis for Native Americans and forced another re-examination of the answers. While much attention has been devoted to Indian Wars, this overview presents American Indian policy from its philosophical and legal underpinnings and the practices of the various colonial powers in the New World to the British model of Indian-white relations that became the basis of American Indian policy. We will focus on the personalities and institutions that shaped it, its major phases from treaties and trade acts, the creation of reservations, assimilation and allotment, cultural revival and self-determination to the present.
