NATIVEAM 111B: Muwekma: Landscape Archaeology and the Narratives of California Natives (ANTHRO 111C, ARCHLGY 111B)

This course explores the unique history of San Francisco Bay Area tribes with particular attention to Muwekma Ohlone- the descendent community associated with the landscape surrounding and including Stanford University. The story of Muwekma provides a window into the history of California Indians from prehistory to Spanish exploration and colonization, the role of Missionaries and the controversial legacy of Junipero Serra, Indigenous rebellions throughout California, citizenship and land title during the 19th century, the historical role of anthropology and archaeology in shaping policy and recognition of Muwekma, and the fight for acknowledgement of Muwekma as a federally recognized tribe. We will visit local sites associated with this history and participate in field surveys of the landscape of Muwekma.

This course will look at notable Native American Women in Native American history starting with Native American oral tradition narratives about important women in specific tribal narratives including origin narratives used in Native American tribal history. Native American history is not required in any national curriculum and as a result, Native American people(s) encounter many stereotypes and false beliefs about indigenous peoples of the United States. This course will focus on the role of women in Native American history including historic narratives in oral tradition as maintained in specific Native American histories (as told from a Native American perspective).
