TOP REVIEWS FROM INDIGENOUS CANADA
This was my first ever online course ,I had great time to do this . Now I feel like I have more knowledge about first people of this land.Feel more respect for indigenous people and for their culture.
I really loved this class. It was great learning about the First Nations of Canada. There was so much I didn't know about that I learned from this course. It was all very enlightening and interesting.
This is a must for anyone, non-indigenous to Indigenous to complete. Should also be a part of the process to become a Canadian citizen. Very well done. I thank you for opening my eyes, mind and heart.
Very informative, I really enjoyed this course. The perspectives presented were eye-opening, and it was nice to be able to learn more about Indigenous peoples and what they have endured on their land.
