Title: Non-metric Hereditarily Indecomposable Continua.

Abstract: The author discusses techniques for producing non-metric hereditarily indecomposable continua. Examples are presented.  However, attempts to generalize metric construction techniques yield situations in which hereditary indecomposability implies metrizability. We review the author's recent results regarding such situations.  Open problems in the area are stated.
