The Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse) have occupied present-day New York State and Southern Ontario for hundreds of years. Over the years, the Haudenosaunee have lost nearly all of their historic lands along with regional political power and wealth. Leading this predatory effort has been the colony and state of New York. This course is focused on the modern-day relationship between the Haudenosaunee and New York State. The first three weeks of the course will introduce students to the historical relationship. Four weeks will be dedicated to the exploration of foundation legal and political principles. And the remaining 8 weeks will focus on case studies of contemporary issues and conflicts. Students will be graded based on class participation and completion of a research paper. Undergraduate students will be expected to write a 20-page paper and graduate students a 30-page paper.
