Indigenous Studies I

Indigenous Studies I (the prerequisite course to Indigenous Studies II) explores the culture, identity, and history of Indigenous Canadians. This course examines the Indian Act of 1867, the language used by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people when describing one another, the numbered treaties of Canada, and contemporary issues, including the fiduciary obligations of the Canadian government toward Indigenous peoples and the co-existence of Indigenous and settler communities and cultures.

Note: Restricted to Disability Studies, Indigenous Studies, Justice, Open Studies, Social Work, Therapeutic Recreation

This course introduces students to the Indigenous Peoples of Canada in both a historical and present-day context. Students will examine how the historic past of Indigenous Peoples brings us to present-day circumstances and the ongoing issues faced by Indigenous Peoples in Canada, and how this knowledge can help Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians to become good neighbours.
