As part of our on-going commitment to the 94 calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and particularly the challenge to churches to better educate members about the history of residential schools and issues facing Indigenous people today, the St. George’s Anti-Racism Team will be leading a discussion series on Indigenous Canada.
Indigenous Canada is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) from the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta, which 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.
