Indigenous Canada

Indigenous Canada is a free online course, offered by University of Alberta and hosted on Coursera.

“Indigenous Canada is a 12-lesson Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that explores Indigenous histories and contemporary issues in Canada. From an Indigenous perspective, this course explores key issues facing Indigenous peoples today from a historical and critical perspective highlighting national and local Indigenous-settler relations. Topics for the 12 lessons include the fur trade and other exchange relationships, land claims and environmental impacts, legal systems and rights, political conflicts and alliances, Indigenous political activism, and contemporary Indigenous life, art and its expressions.”

The course re-opens for registration April 16, 2018. The course runs for 12 weeks, and you complete it at your own pace. If you need computer access to view the content, contact your local library. Some may be able to assist you.
