Indigenous and Environmental Studies -
Indigenous Peoples in Canada





NAC2O1
This course is centred upon the Aboriginal notion of Living for the Seventh Generation and examines the evolving relationship between Aboriginal peoples and non-Aboriginal peoples in Canada. Students will use the Seven Grandfather teachings to examine the geographic, historic and contemporary issues that impact upon this relationship. The methods of geographic and historic inquiry, a process of asking relevant questions to guide research, and locating and assembling data for the purpose of constructing interpretations, and drawing conclusions, are an important focus in this course. Indeed, these skills allow students to investigate the varied notions of nationhood held by Aboriginal peoples through the exploration of Aboriginal storytelling, art, dance, music, food, film, economics, politics/law and culture. Due to the interactive and multidimensional nature of this course, students are expected to listen attentively to guest speakers and participate fully in field trips. Knowing that we all walk upon the faces of the unborn, how will you choose to walk?
