This course was amazing, I first took Indigenous Canada and this was my 2nd course. I felt I had to learn all I can on these important and current issues - a better understanding is what we all need.

I want to thank the University of Toronto for giving me and others around the world the opportunity to attend this course. It was so interesting. It increased my cultural baggage and my humanity a lot. Thanks also to Prof, Restoule for his clarity and the evident commitment in his job.

An excellent overview of very difficult issues. I would have appreciated a complete references list on a stand alone document. also the video transcripts could be bundled into one pdf so that students can compare the texts back and forth.
Thank you for the chance to learn this!

This is actually geared towards teachers, but provides valuable insights for the lay person wanting to better understand North American Indigenous worldviews. The accopanying YouTube videos are must-see, and this resource is probably the most valuable for non-teachers.

This was a genuinely engaging and valuable starting point for understanding Aboriginal culture and where education in our modern society has come from the days of residential schools and their harmful intent to reduce culture and stability in the indegineous community.

The course provided a new perspective on the negative effects of imposed non-native education systems and values as well as providing an understanding of how positive change can be implemented.
Many thanks for the opportunity. R. Joseph, Halifax, NS

An essential course delivered by an expert and empathetic instructor. In my opinion, this course is a must for educators in Canada, anyone working with aboriginal populations, or anyone who cares about the past, present and future of the country.

Excellent, thoughtful, and dynamic course! I would highly recommend it. My only critique is that the links on the site should be updated since several are broken (saves time from looking it up in the discussion forums).

This has been an phenomenal course on the education and worldviews of First Nations people. As an educator in a First Nation's community in Ontario's north, the knowledge in the lectures has been phenomenal.

Very educational and grounded. I felt myself growing in both understanding and disappointment . I wish that I could speak to my ancestors to help them see how blind they were. I am now definitely an Ally.

I appreciated the course because of its rather specific worldview. A very interesting introduction to another way of thinking, and seeing historical facts from a quite different perspective.

Fantastic starter for understanding perspective. I can now understand the Canadian news better than I ever have, and I am asking better questions, especially of politicians.
