MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on Indigenous Canada

The University of Alberta has developed a free MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) entitled Indigenous Canada:
"From an Indigenous perspective, this course explores key issues facing Indigenous peoples today from a historical and critical perspective highlighting national and local Indigenous-settler relations."
"Indigenous Canada is for students from faculties outside the Faculty of Native Studies with an interest in acquiring a basic familiarity with Aboriginal/non-Aboriginal relationships."
The free online class takes place over 12 weeks and includes twelve modules composed of video lectures, course notes and required and recommended readings.

Topics covered include:
  • The fur trade and other exchange relationships
  • Land claims and environmental impacts
  • Legal systems and rights
  • Political conflicts and alliances
  • Indigenous political activism
  • Contemporary Indigenous life, art and its expressions.
