I really enjoyed the course! So much I didn't know about the history. I also didn't have a true understanding why there is so much discourse between Indigenous people and government. Total eye opener.
Very informative. They teach history and mention the aboriginal journey, but this tells another story. Thank you for allowing me an opportunity to glimpse into to the world of an aboriginal of Canada.

It was very full of wonderful information. I did like the ability to read along instead of just listening if I wanted to. I also like that I could choose to just read instead of watching also. Adding a few more pictures and videos would have been nice also to break it up a little more. Well done, thank you!

Great course! There were a few quiz questions that appeared to have multiple arguably reasonable responses, but otherwise, I greatly enjoyed the material and learned a lot. Taking this course was the only thing I did to commemorate "Canada 150," and as a settler Canadian, I feel that was the right decision.

Greatly informative. People speaking are reading a script and it comes off as a bit boring. I'd prefer audio without images of narrator and more visuals of what is being discussed. Even if narration is scripted and read, it can be executed in a more dynamic way. Kudos for the rich content. I learned a lot.

Having learned Canadian history in high school, it was refreshing to see this 'history' told from a the perspective of the First Nations. For example, the discussions about the role of the Hudsons Bay Trading company portrayed the complexities of the relationship between First Nations and settlers.

I really appreciated this course, I will certainly be striving to learn more and share what I have learned. It would be helpful if some things were updated and if there were more interactive questions within the units. Also having recommendations for further study would be Amazing.
Thank you so much

Some of the quizzes felt as if they were trying to trick you with the options. I felt the tests could have asked better questions that were designed to teach rather than push memorization. It also would have been helpful to see where you went wrong rather than just being told to re-watch a module.

This series has brought me a much clearer understanding of the generational harms that we impose on each other from a root of preconceived decisions about who we think we are, who you think we are, who I think I am, who I am and the who I want to be. I am grateful to have taken this course.

Really easy to follow along with. Great overview of first nations in Canada. I am so glad I decided to take this course. I would recommend putting even more multiple choice questions throughout the videos they really helped me stay engaged and think more critically about the materials.

Excellent study of Indigenous history and culture which should be mandatory learning for our school systems in Canada at all levels starting at a very young age and increasing in detail and study throughout high school as a integral part of the 'history' programs taught now. Thank you.

The course material is wonderful. The videos are well done and informative and I enjoyed them immensely. Unfortunately the required quizzes are not put together quite as well. Many questions are ambiguous, misleading, or have more than one correct answer given in the multiple choice.

Great course. Presents an indigenous point of view of Canadian history not taught in school . I think there needs to be more content included in the Canadian school curriculum about the original Canadian peoples and how important their contribution has been to this great country.

A good introductory course covering a wide variety of topics. There are a spelling errors in the 'subtitles' and reading documents. A few of the questions could do with being reviewed and/or be worded better. Overall though I enjoyed the course and found it very informative.

I feel like I've learned a lot of interesting and very helpful things about Indigenous peoples, their world views and how that impacts many aspects of their lives today. I hope I can continue learning. I feel like this has just whetted my appetite to learn more. Thank you.

Information that all Canadians need to be aware of. Great use of various mediums. The multiple choice questions were often poorly worded, asking for what was 'not' an option. Loved the use of art forms and the commissioned pieces that were explained by the artist, Leah Dorion.

To be honest, I signed up for this course due to the celebrity of Dan Levy. However, I stayed because I became very surprised to see how little I knew about the plight of the Indigenous peoples of Canada. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to join in this course.

Very important information to be learning. I appreciate the knowledge and thank you for making this course available to so many people. There is still so much more to learn. It would be amazing to have courses that dive deeper into the topics that where touched on.

I appreciate the efforts that have gone into creating this course. I found the multiple-choice approach to the exams a little tricky but enjoyed the challenge. I describe myself as unilingual, with English as my first language and it was challenged during the exams.

Well presented, mostly interesting to follow, especially the units on the fur trade and indigenous arts. Elsewhere, the tone is somewhat less critical, more advocative than informative. In some lectures, especially the one on community, the language gets rather puzzling.

It was a great course. Although some things I did not agree with such as the title of the course being a 'Modern Indian" because we should all know that "Indian" is .. for lack of better word.. a racist term and should be using words such as Indigenous or First Nation.

Thank you very much, Dr. Tracy Bear and other instructors and writers, for this important course. I learned a great deal which, I trust, will build bridges as opportunities arise. I am happy to see that hundreds of thousands of people are signing up for this course.

Very informative; appreciated content delivery format and interactive painting component of each module. Occasionally found ‘Quiz’ questions to be unclear; on-line format did not provide avenue for clarification of understanding.
Will absolutely recommend this course.

This was a great introductory course to Indigenous studies. It was eye opening, and humbling to realize how little we as Canadians know about our history, the way our government, laws and treaties have been concocted to work against the progress of Indigenous people.

This was a broad and comprehensive review of Indigenous history and modern day culture of Canadian first nations. As an immigrant to Canada with very little exposure, background or education on this, I gained a much deeper understanding of this fascinating subject.

Thank you for the work, the opinions and the history lesson. I learned a great deal and have much to think about after completing the course. I appreciate all the time that went into producing this course and hope to see other courses in the future. Well done!

Definitely an eye-opening introduction to the masked history of North America. There is so much more to learn and experience in order to truly get an authentic understanding, I believe that requires meeting people, working for them and amplifying their voice.
