PHIL 365 Indigenous Peoples, Sustainability, and the Environment

3 Credits

This course focuses on the concept of sustainability. Through case studies of the Lakota Sioux and their attitude toward nature, students examine the central rituals and beliefs of their religion and explicate how these rituals and beliefs constitute a viable religious connection to the environment. During the course of study, connections are also made to other religious/cultural traditions that treat the environment with respect and view it as part of the spiritual order. Students also examine how various tribes manage the resources that are found on their reservations and learn that traditional Western environmental management has little in common with the management strategies found on contemporary Native American reservations. These analyses lead to an understanding of sustainability as a central organizing feature of all environmental decision-making.

Prerequisite(s): PHIL 102  and THEO 104  and a minimum of 55 earned credits.
