R321 Fall 2019 Native American Veterans in the Wars, Part 1
Thursdays, 9:40–11:05, Oct. 17–Oct. 31
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. This course was previously taught in Fairfax and in Loudoun. See course 978 for Part 2 of this series.
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.
