Very informative. They teach history and mention the aboriginal journey, but this tells another story. Thank you for allowing me an opportunity to glimpse into to the world of an aboriginal of Canada.

I came into this course thinking I had some knowledge of indigenous people in Canada. I was so wrong. Thankfully I learned a lot. So grateful for this course. I will continue to keep learning about the original owners of this land that I occupy.

Excellent! I really appreciated this opportunity to decolonize the Canadian history I was taught and I look forward to using what I have learned to ensure my children will have a decolonized perspective on Canadian history as well. Thank you!

Such a great, involving, interesting course. I loved the personal stories, community involvement aspect and how the course intertwined well with current issues. The artistic aspect was an excellent summative piece at the end of each module.

Enjoyed learning more about a culture that many know little about. Really opened my eyes to the mistreated of indigenous people, and how I can do better to understand and support these communities by allowing to help their voices be heard.

A contender for the best course I have done on Coursera. Among other things, historians have the responsibility of showing us who are are, rather than who we would like to think we are. This course took on this challenge successfully!

A great history lesson! The information was very comprehensive and covered different aspects of Indigenous life in Canada. As a non Indigenous person, It was an honour to be educated on the history of the owners of the land. Thank you

This was a very informative course and provided important knowledge of Indigenous peoples' perspective of Canadian & British colonial history that is sadly missing both in Canadian & British perspective of the history of this country.
