View flier

This exciting class offers a unique opportunity to experience how Native American regalia makers and storytellers, as well as Romanian traditional woodcarvers, rug weavers, clothing makers, and singers sustain and transmit their cultural heritage through their cultural traditions. No previous knowledge of Native American or Romanian traditions is needed.

Course meets virtually with Romanian students one per month at 8am, in addition to regular class times.

To potential students, please note that this class meets elective requirements for Anthropology the new Media and Culture Certificate. Reading load will be relative light, lots of videos to watch, and you get to post on social media for credit!!!
