Art and aesthetic is the creative force of people and their worldviews. “Indian” art and aesthetic is an interpretation and expression of life by the Indigenous peoples of North America. While numerous Indigenous peoples reside in the western hemisphere, this class introduces you to the aesthetic universe of peoples who are currently known as American Indian, Alaskan Native and some Canadian First Nations. This class will provide you an abundance of thought, expression, stories, dance, art and art objects, film, and music to consider. The intent is to invite you into the sounds, motions, objects, spirit and colors that are the aesthetic universe of Native North America.
