TOP REVIEWS FROM INDIGENOUS CANADA
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 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.
Thank you so much for this course. Also thanks to Dan Levy for suggesting it. The course and weekly chats helped educate me in Canada's true history, information that I should have received in school.
Very well done! Thank you for allowing me to learn more about your history & culture. Being from Ireland and relatively new to Canada I wanted to know more about the beginnings of Canada as a country.
