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.

Really fell in love with Indigenous studies while taking this course! This has helped me educate myself on not only our true history but also on our modern political climate. I suggest this course to anyone and everyone that might be passionate about humanities with the focus on Canadian Indigenous history.

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.

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.

I thought the course was excellent. In the last Module 12 Living Traditions: Expressions in Pop Culture and Art I would of liked to see the artwork of the artist's that were spoken about. This would have enhanced this module. Overall I really enjoyed the lessons as a Haudenosaunee and Kanienke

It was interesting to learn from artistic, symbolic and storytelling points of view the alternative historical development of indigenous peoples and colonialism in Canada. I recommend this course for those who want to learn about First Nations, Métis, Inuit and Aboriginal culture and history.

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.

I enjoyed this course immensely! It was so informative and opened my eyes to many of the injustices I wasn’t fully aware of. I feel much more confident in moving forward to learning and understanding more of the issues the indigenous communities face.
Thank you for sharing this.

Amazing course. As a Non-Indigenous person with only a vague understanding of Indigenous Peoples history this really open my eyes to both the past and present of Indigenous Peoples. I truly believe this course should be made a mandatory component of the high school curriculum across Canada.

I found this course so informative and interesting! While I realize that one overview course can never completely touch on all the issues, I found that the basic knowledge outlined here will help me as I interact as a fellow Canadian with my Indigenous neighbors. Thank you so much!

Loved the course. The course has given me a very different perspective on who the indigenous people of Canada are and how they where ignored when settlers came to their lands. Very eye opening. Loved the art work by Leah Dorion, it beautifully complimented the lessons. Well done!!

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!
