RELG 320 - Native American Religious Freedom

Explores the interaction of indigenous religions and secular law in the United States. What does the U.S. Constitution say about Indigenous religious beliefs and practices? Why have Indigenous beliefs and practices been historically marginalized within U.S. law, and what does this history tell us about the separation of church and state? Students address these questions through an exploration of key U.S. Supreme Court cases from the 20th and 21st centuries. No prior knowledge of U.S. religion or U.S. law is assumed.
