Native American Culture and History

The anthropology and history of Native Americans has by and large been written by White Scholars. Native
Americans are quick to point out that this is a history of the conquered written by the conquerors. Many Native
Americans see this White anthropology and history as a form of oppression. Compare and contrast the
Scholarly approaches to the study of Native Americans and discuss the Native American critique of White
scholarship. Use the question of the origins of Native Americans and the controversy over the Kennewick Man
to illustrate the similarities and differences between Scholarly and Native American perspectives
