Credits: 3 (3 + 0) 

Prerequisite(s): ANT 1310 or CHS 1000; or Permission of instructor

Description: This course presents an ethnographic focus on the native peoples of South America. Students will analyze the daily cultural life of selected Indian peoples beginning at the point of contact in the 16th century, and the Spanish Colonial peoples of this time, to the present. Custom and tradition are studies in depth among Amazonian and Caribbean foragers, tribal groups of Patagonia, chiefdoms of the Andes inter-montane valleys, and the state-level civilizations of the high Andes. The cultural focus is in the context of the conquests of the European powers that struggled for domination of this highly diverse region.
