University Offers Free Native Peoples of Oklahoma Online Course

During this spring semester the University of Oklahoma will offer Native Peoples of Oklahoma, a free online course on the cultural traditions and current conditions of the Native American tribes who live in Oklahoma.

The course was originally taught in a traditional classroom setting for more than a decade by a since retired professor, now Dr. Daniel Swan and Dr. Joshua Nelson are reviving the course and presenting it online through Janux, OU’s interactive learning community.

“The online course will broaden the ability of those outside of Oklahoma, as well as within the state, to better understand its Native population,” states a release from the university.

And those interested in taking the course need not be enrolled students to take it. The class can still be taken free of charge simply by signing up through Janux, but no course credit will be given.

“Native Peoples of Oklahoma was once a highly sought after and highly attended course at OU,” said Swan, a professor of anthropology at OU and curator of ethnology at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. “This semester, we’re reviving it and offering it to anyone who’s interested in American Indian culture. We think we have created the best course overview of Oklahoma American Indians available by bringing in our most renowned faculty experts and resources in the field.”

“These resources give students access to the best possible information and knowledge on these subjects,” Nelson, a citizen of the Cherokee nation and assistant professor of English focusing on American Indian literature and film, said. “More Native American languages are taught for college credit at OU than any other university in the world, and OU is ranked among the preeminent institutions in the nation for the study of American Indian literature. Now, through Janux, we’re able to see this course offered to anyone in the world.”

The course begins January 13—to sign up for free, visit Janux.
