Faculty of Native Studies

This course is an introductory study of the visual and literary forms of Indigenous erotica in North America. This course will examine a broad selection of historical and contemporary Indigenous expressions of sexuality and gender. The manifestations of the erotic will be examined and understood as a way for Indigenous peoples to reclaim corporeal sovereignty, overcome centuries of sexual repression and shame and revive understandings of gender and sexuality deeply rooted in Indigenous cultural paradigms. Prerequisites: NS 110, NS 111 and NS 260 or NS 290 or consent of the faculty.
