Indigenous Perspectives on Humor

This course explores the concept of humor and some of its cultural uses and manifestations: the use and abuse of racial and cultural stereotypes; comedy, tragedy and irony in Native American art, literature, and the oral tradition; and humor as an analytical tool to examine aspects of culture that may not be fully apparent on the surface.
