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.

This course was much more than I expected. Being of Indigenous descent myself, the course has certainly opened my eyes and paved a path forward in my life. It has given me a rich appreciation for Canada's Indigenous people, past, present and future. I feel deeply moved and forever changed because of the course.

I really enjoyed the course and I would like to learn more. I would have liked to see more old photos from history files. I feel the Canadian public schools should really teach our children this history! Thank you to the advocacy groups for your fight to protect the lands and keep our government accountable.

I have learned so much over these last 12 weeks that I am continuing my learning and am reading much from my local library and am speaking to Elders at my workplace to futher my depth of knowledge. Thank you so much for the insights and for opening my eyes to the history of the Indigenous peoples of Canada.

Very eye-opening for me. I grew up in Southern Alberta, which is very much Indigenous territory, so I grew up around Aboriginal people and know more about their culture than other people around the world do on average. But, even with that background, I learned lots, and as a result, I loved the course.

I thought it was engaging, enlightening and full of positive takeaways that are applicable in a multitude of ways. Learning more about Indigenous matters through their voice and eyes and teachings was very important and insightful. I think this course is essential and am so happy that I took it!

In depth general yet well-informed, documented, and presented materials, and mandatory knowledge on Indigenous Canada. Thank you for speaking slowly! And brava to Leah Dorion for her painted stories! This was a wonderful course, Dr. Tracy Bear, Dr. Paul Gareau, and every invited presenter guests!

This is a brilliant, and highly important, course for all who live in Canada to take. This also suits those abroad who should understand the deep and powerful cultural resistance and expressions of Aboriginal peoples in North America - and beyond. Everyone needs to have done this course, truly.

This course provided me with a information regarding Indigenous Health that will help guide me as a Mental Health Nurse working in Toronto. I wish Indigenous Health and History was mandatory and taught extensively growing up. Thank you for putting this together to help educate future leaders.

This is one of the best courses I have ever attended. It was so well researched, designed and constructed that I have recommended it to everyone I know. should be a mandatory course for all Canadians - settlers, new immigrants and indigenous - everyone can learn from this course.

Great course! Very interesting and informative. I wish there were more. The only thing I missed about it was some kind of pronunciation sheet or listing for the various Indigenous names and words. It would make the readings a bit easier. I highly recommend this course to everyone!

This course is a must take if you call yourself a resident of Canada. I loved being enriched with this country's history and at the same time saddened by the indigenous peoples' struggle. There's a lot more to learn still but this is a start. Thank you for offering this course.

The best course I've ever taken in a MOOC format. It open my eyes to think differently and dig deeper. It even inspired me to write about it back home, because the biggest shock for me, as a new immigrant was.... How do we not hear about any of this in the rest of the world?

The course was really the perfect balance of introductory material and more in-depth examples. I really appreciated the Indigenous-led content, the respect for context, and the different formats for learning. I will definitely be keeping the course notes to look back over!

Took this training along with several of my colleagues at the Justice Institute of BC. The material is presented in a very neutral way and invites the learner to draw their own conclusions about the information. Overall, this was a tremendous learning experience. Thank you!

Such an informative course! I recommend that every Canadian take this course. It is truly shameful that so little is taught in our school's curriculum about this country's history. We as a nation have a long way to go before the wrongs of the past will ever be righted.

Very interesting course. Very much the opinion of the narrators - much is true but being a non-indigenous person made me feel as if I was the direct cause of all the indigenous problems, which I am quite sure is not the case. I liked learning more about the history.

This course was incredibly well done and eye-opening. The information provided in each topic was fitting to the goal and gave beneficial details creating a connection with the material and an individuals voice. I wish my Grade system Education had taught me this.

Excellent, thorough content. I have taken other indigenous studies courses but I found this content both engaging and accessible, and highly relevant. I think this course is a must for all settlers and is a good CE requirement for those in the public services.

Every Canadian should take this course and classes based on it should be mandatory in every high school across the country. I'm hoping a second instalment will come where we can learn in more depth about the suffering of this country's Indigenous Peoples.
