We are all looking forward with interest to the impending visit of His Holiness, Pope Francis to  Canada beginning on July 24, 2022, to meet with our Indigenous Peoples.

In the meantime, we would like to inform you of some opportunities to gain an understanding about our history with Indigenous peoples and to begin a process of Truth and Reconciliation.

Your Journey through Indigenous Canada is a 12-lesson Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) from the Faculty of Native Studies of the University of Alberta, which explores the different histories and contemporary perspectives of Indigenous peoples living in Canada.

From an Indigenous perspective, this course explores complex experiences Indigenous peoples face today from a historical and critical perspective highlighting national and local Indigenous-settler relations.

Topics for the 12 lessons include the fur trade and other exchange relationships, land claims and environmental impacts, legal systems and rights, political conflicts and alliances, Indigenous political activism, and contemporary Indigenous life, art, and its expressions.

 To learn more, visit these two links provided by The University of Alberta.
