Eng 256 Native American Literature

Course Description:

Study of American Indian literature from early forms such as songs, orations, and traditional narratives, including trickster-tale cycles, to more recent genres of autobiography, essays, poetry, and fiction.


True to the course description this class offered a very wide array of works by Native American authors. I particularly appreciated the fact that everything we read was by Native American authors and that the professor was an English professor and not an anthropology professor. My favorite author that I read in this course was Sherman Alexie. The novel we read in this class was Indian Killer and I even got to read another novel by him in a different course this semester. As far as my career goals go, this course was just another experience with a specific genre in the world of Literature.
