(FORTUNE Magazine) – PRINCETON, N.J. -- Joining the nationwide trend toward a multicultural curriculum, Princeton University is offering a course on American Indian religions for the first time this semester. But no one, including the professor, expected that 282 students would wrench themselves out of bed before 9 A.M. twice a week to take it. ''It has always been 'politically correct' to ignore Native Americans,'' said David L. Carrasco . . . who is teaching the course. ''Now we're trying to bring back some balance'' . . . Professor Carrasco . . . said he hopes to encourage his class to challenge pervasive stereotypes by introducing them to the spiritual significance of such practices as human sacrifice . . .'' -- From a news report in the New York Times.
