Indigenous Fashion

This course is an introduction to Indigenous fashion globally. Whereas historical Indigenous clothing practices were previously considered dress or costume within anthropology, this course examines Indigenous clothing as fashion systems in their own right. Through exploration of contemporary Indigenous design resurgence amongst Indigenous peoples such as the Anishnaabe, Inuit, Maori, Sámi and Zapotecs, this course also introduces issues related to imperialism and colonization, capitalism, and globalization.
