TOP REVIEWS FROM INDIGENOUS CANADA
I found this course to be very informative. Thank you for the opportunity to see our shared history from another perspective. I hope this is as groundbreaking for my fellow Canadians as it was for me.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course in the the way it is presented and the information given. It expanded my knowledge and insights of indigenous history, culture, and knowledge, as well as so much more.
Such important information for us all. This course was eye-opening and should really be taken by every Canadian. The course flows along nicely and is easy to navigate. I am better for having taken it.
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.
