Introduction to Indigenous World Views

This course introduces students to the distinct pre-contact world views of First Nations and Inuit, and the later world view of the Metis of North America. Students will examine the territories, stories, and contributions that these original cultures created through their relationship with their unique environments. Students will explore the common issues that Indigenous peoples around the world face in their history, geography, politics, economics, education, and culture. The course will also reflect on the intersection of Indigenous world views and cultures with dominant Western world views and cultures.

Note: Restricted to Community Support Worker, settlement Studies, Disability Studies and Open Studies
