NHIS 208C - Congress Whispers, Reservation Nations Endure

This class will cover portions of the book, Congress Whispers, Reservation Nations Endure; A Century of Public Acts of Aggression, Confusion and Resolution, explores a unique body of federal actions: legislation resting in near silence of all other U.S. public law. Although these laws apply most directly to less than 1.5% of our nation's citizenry - members of American Indian tribes - they affect all Americans in important but less obvious ways. These tribe-focused laws continue to frame New Millenium relationships between American Indian tribes and their state and federal counterparts. Through the enactment of these laws, Congress played a significant role in the transformation of tribal lands of the Civil War Era into western states, national parks, public lands, and American Indian reservations.

NHLH 116C - Yoga

This seven-week course will utilize the science of Yoga, incorporating breath, gentle stretching, strengthening, deep relaxation, affirmation and meditation as a tool to experience a heightened sense of well being in and out of class. We are what we have always imagined ourselves to be. The imagination has been limited or conditioned by a culture which sees itself as, at best, minimally well or happy. We must outgrow the cultural conditionings that discourage our continual growth and expand our range of motion, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will explore the myths of aging which prevent our becoming more expansive. We will look at our life-style choices, modify or expand them. We will look at changing diet to accommodate our new bodies. We will reaffirm ourselves as dynamic beings. The needs of each student will be acknowledged. Dress comfortably, bring a mat and a positive outlook.

NREL 124C - Celtic Spirituality

Between mid-400 A.D. to mid-600 A.D., Ireland practiced a unique type of Christianity. After the fall of Rome there was no central authority directing the practice of religion, no official date as to when Easter was to be observed each year, etc. The Irish embraced Christianity (without bloodshed) while still upholding their Druidic traditions. Irish men and women were both priests and bishops alike. Humanity was seen as fundamentally good, an integral part of God's creation. All of this was contrary to the writings of Augustine of Hippo, that men were born into sin, adopted as the official positions of Christendom. The Synod of Whitby in 664 A.D. favored the disciple Peter as the rock of the church as opposed to the disciple John, remembered as 'listening for the heartbeat of God.' What would Christianity be like today if the Synod had decided differently?

NSOC 100C - Amazon River and Rain Forest

Bill and Bev Stives are a retired couple. Bill is a pharmacist and Bev is a clown, puppeteer and storyteller. They have traveled extensively from Antarctica to the Arctic Circle and many places in between, including the Galapagos Islands, Iceland, Africa, the Amazon River and Rain Forest, and Churchill Manitoba to see the polar bears. They have also done mission work in the Dominican Republic and Haiti for 12 years. The Amazon River and Rain Forest program begins with some of the pre-Inca ruins in Peru. We then flew to Iquetos where we boarded our boat for a trip down the Amazon River. Along the river, we visited a school, had lunch with a native family, fished for piranha and hiked through the forest-crossing rope bridges high above the trees.
