This course was eye-opening and an essential learning experience for my work with First Nations children and their families. I have and will continue to recommend this course to my colleagues.

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!

I really enjoyed the course. Having the transcripts along with the videos is great to help with review. The course notes are what I used extensively to write blogs about each module (I'm up to Week 6 on that - I will continue with writing a blog for each module every few days until I write a blog for each of the 12) .

I feel that someone does need some knowledge about the Indigenous issues in Canada to properly grasp what is presented in this course. There is a lot of information and (obviously) the course cannot go too deep. Some of the information was completely unknown to me (ie: the layering of rules around what the Indigenous peoples can do with the resources when they became too successful). And the module on treaties was difficult to understand because of the legalize.

I really enjoyed the information about the "modernization" of Indigenous peoples (ie: art, activism, success within urban settings). I think people are too stuck in viewing Indigenous peoples in their traditional roles and don't acknowledge how Indigenous peoples are just as adaptable as anyone else in changing times. Just like any other culture, values don't change, but day-to-day life does. I can't wait to see what an incredible country we can have when we are all arm-in-arm, linked together, walking towards the future together.

Thanks for the final recommendation to pursue some of the artists mentioned. I intend to do just that!

This was propaganda with a major political agenda. Production values were good, but the one-sided slant of the material is inexcusable.

This course was very informative about the history of indigenous peoples of Canada. I now have a greater perspective about the issues that Canadians must deal with regarding indigenous issues in modern society.

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.

This course is an amazing experience and a great start towards educating yourself about the lives of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. I can't recommend it enough to anyone who seeks to work towards reconciliation by furthering their understanding of the struggles, successes, and beauty of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people in Canada and the incredibly distinct and diverse cultures that have occupied this land since time immemorial.
