Land and Story in Native America

Tessa L. Desmond and Sarah Rivett

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

Creation stories from Turtle Island foreground an integral connection between land and story. “Sky Woman Falling” contains key ecological and environmental knowledge. This course explores the relationship between land and story, emphasizing seeds as sources of sovereignty and repositories of knowledge across generations. We focus on Native New Jersey while understanding the history of this land in the context of global indigeneity and settler colonialism. Course literature engages seeds, land, and the environment from a perspective that crosses the disciplines of American studies, literature, history, ecology, and environmental studies.
