I really enjoyed the course! So much I didn't know about the history. I also didn't have a true understanding why there is so much discourse between Indigenous people and government. Total eye opener.

I loved having both the video and the written notes. The interviews were excellent, and the speakers brought in were very interesting. Thank you! It was an excellent experience.

An eye opener that ties the History of Modern Canada to the mostly traumatic relationship between the indigenous peoples of Canada and the setllers and its contnued adverse effects

This has been an incredible opportunity to learn about Canada's history that is erased from the the history taught in schools. It has been a privilege to engage with this content.

The course was a real eye-opener I now have a much wider appreciation of the Indigenous peoples' issues in Canada - by association other counties like Australia and USA. Thanks.

For anyone in Canada or the United States, this is the history you very likely have never known. Take this course with an open mind and expand your worldview. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

Great course! As an indigenous individual I thought I knew quite a bit about my own history and the history of other nations but I was shown so much more in this course.

Thank You!

Fantastic course! A lot material to cover, I would like like more interactive activities rather than just optional discussion. I enjoyed the videos and the notes taking ability.

I loved understanding Indigenous history away from the colonial gaze. There were so many things I was unaware of; we need to be teaching REAL Indigenous history in public schools
