Caroline Woidat - English Department (Welles Hall 228A)

The minor in Native American Studies will provide Geneseo students with a means for studying some of the pressing public policy issues affecting New York as a state with a sizable Native American population. New York is at the heart of some of the most critical debates in Native America: taxation of reservation land by state and local entities, gambling and its consequences, land rights and remedies, and, in general, the practice of Native American tribal sovereignty. Theminor allows students to approach these issues from an interdisciplinary approach, examining them within the larger frameworks of American history, literature, and anthropological studies.
