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 led 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.
While our discussion series has come to a close, the course is still being offered. Follow this link to take the course for free, get a certificate, or study for credit. Registration is now open, and we encourage you to sign up. The course is very accessible and offers an introduction to any who wish to know more about Indigenous/non-Indigenous relationships.
