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.

Loved this course, had a great flow to move through. I felt I learned a lot was an enjoyable experience and can't wait to see where this leads.
One recommendation is to make the videos a little more exciting!
Thank you :)

This was an excellent course, informative and at times heartbreaking. My only criticism, which has been made by others, is that some questions on the quizzes had more than one "correct" option among the possible answers.

Extremely well organized and engaging material on a subject it's a shame we didn't all learn more about in schools. I am very grateful that such a course is accessible to anyone who is interested in learning, at no cost!

I learned so much an appreciate the span of topics, knowledge, worldviews from across North America. I wish you were offering more courses about pre-contact time and about the changes during initial contact.

The detail of the course gives a very good insight into the impact of colonization on indigenous people which has helped me have a greater understanding and awareness of the complex issues facing our indigenous people.

Very informative course if you need an introduction to Indigenous history in Canada. The deadlines that were suggested were reasonable and the length of the quizzes were reasonable. Would recommend taking this course.

I enjoyed learning more of the facts and actually understanding how the stereotyping and racism is still very much alive and well.
I also, feel that I wish our society could learn to embrace the Indigenous world view.

Absolutely fantastic course. Would recommend to anyone wishing to amplify and support the works of our First Peoples of Turtle Island on decolonizing spaces and acknowledging our history. A must-take course for all.

A very good survey or introduction to Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous History in Canada. I wish it had been more in depth, but that was outside of the scope of the course. It's encouraged me to keep learning more.

Very much enjoyed the course as it was basic history we should have all learned in our early years. I went and reviewed references that were mentioned and it was great to learn more than the Cree where i grew up.

Very interesting course. The wide perspectives of the studies presented here make it involving, giving a different way of viewing a so important historical/anthropological question, so actual in north america.

Wonderful introduction to indigenous culture, issues, and issues told from an indigenous perspective. Highly educational and eye opening. It should be a mandatory course for all Canadians. Highly recommend.

This course filled in my narrow understanding and knowledge of indigenous history and, especially, urban issues and how the effects of residential schools have impacted so many generations into the future.

Well written, interesting course. All Canadians should take this course. It should be in the school systems, and used by all organizations as an aid in understanding our differences and our similarities.
