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.

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!

I found this course to be both interesting and informative. I work with an indigenous population and this course has helped to broaden my understanding of this population’s history, thereby assisting me in my practice, especially my advocacy role. Thank you for offering it.

I think everyone in Canada should be required to take this course. I have learnt so much, and am so blessed to have had this opportunity. This course has really opened my eyes, and this content should be seen as mandatory in all school curriculums. Thank you so much truly !

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.

The final week on the arts was very inspirational. I am inspired to continue learning and discovering First Nations art, and lands in Canada as a destination to discover with my family. I am so glad to have the experience to learn more about Canada and Indigenous people,

I wish everyone would take this course. So much eye opening information. We really don’t know anything about Indigenous people and life. Indigenous courses should be mandatory in schools and the culture celebrated. It’s such a shame that we are have not been doing that.

Thank you so much for this free course! I learned so much and am motivated to explore some of these issues in more depth. Every Canadian should do this course. So much of this history is left our of our education system which is grossly unfair. We need to do better.

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.

Wow. This content should be part of every Canadians public school education. I have always loved First Nations cultures but I feel this course has helped me understand the complexities that have been faced and how we need to rectify even more as an entire country.

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.

I believe that everyone should take this course. If for nothing more than to gain a greater understanding of our Indigenous Peoples. The course was very well presented. The only problem I found was that the readings were strictly a rehash of the lectures

This course was excellent! The spectrum it covered and the material presented was very well done and relevant. Particularly in the relatively short time span of the course which although I stated short, was perfect and easily digestible. Well Done!

I am so glad I took this course. Until today I was absolutely unaware of history, values of the Indigenous Culture. Its an eye opener, being a Canadian and living on this land changes your perspective to lot many things. Loved learning this course!!!

I came into this course thinking I had some knowledge of indigenous people in Canada. I was so wrong. Thankfully I learned a lot. So grateful for this course. I will continue to keep learning about the original owners of this land that I occupy.
