Indigenous Fashion

Fall 2022

Taught By: Sariah Park

Section: A

CRN: 14561

Credits: 3

This course will introduce Indigenous practices and systems of making from pre-contact to present day, that continue to impact the course of history. Indigenous communities throughout North and South America continue to enlighten global thinking in sustainable design and land-based practices, including agricultural health and environmental activism, to critical issues surrounding cultural advocacy, social justice, gender diversity, plurality, and inclusion. From Indigenous craft to contemporary art, this course will study the distinctive differences between Indigenous communities throughout the Americas. How traditional dress, regalia and body adornment is revered in Indigenous societies as a ritual and way of life, the ultimate expression of self-identity, belonging, healing, and story-telling through modes of making that connect to the Land and the preservation of Ancestral knowledge, transcending fashion from a visual language into the spiritual realm. This course will critique and challenge Eurocentric worldviews, presenting fashion as a form of protest and concepts based in decolonization and the dismantling of imperialism, capitalism, and patriarchal systems of oppression.
