L309 Spring 2019 Native American Veterans in the Wars
Tuesdays, 11:50–1:15, Apr. 9–Apr. 16
Instructor: Michael Nephew
“The French and Indian War” was a misnomer. In fact, Native Americans fought on both sides of that war. Native Americans have fought in almost all of the wars of the colonies and the United States. This is a brief history of Native Americans in the military from the French and Indian War to present-day conflicts.
Michael Nephew is a citizen of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and comes from a long line of Native American veterans. He is also a past president of the American Indian Society of Washington, DC and of the American Indian Inter-Tribal Organization.
