Indigenous Studies ISHU 1036


Our Indigenous Studies course provides an overview of the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada, beginning with pre-contact and moving through the centuries to more recent events (including the Truth and Reconciliation Commission process, report, and recommendations). Explore the complexities of Indigenous identity in Canada, and examine the historical context of specific government policies and the influence of those policies on past and current conditions for Indigenous people.
