Indigenous Ingenuity

AIS 2100

This course explores Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) knowledge and its application across the disciplines and through time. In particular, it offers a glimpse into Cornell’s local indigenous culture through Haudenosaunee understanding of themselves as a unique people, maintaining traditional teachings and fulfilling ancient responsibilities in the world. Students will have opportunities to meet and interact with local Haudenosaunee knowledge holders, intellectuals, and elders.  This class has been approved as a University Course for 2014-2015 and encourages cross-disciplinary study while engaging subjects through new and different lenses.
