Indigenous Canada Discussion Group

Actions and Detail Panel



Online event

Please join us the 2nd Tuesday of the month 6:30-7:30pm ET (5:30-6:30 in April) to discuss the University of Alberta's Indigenous Canada.

About this event

Please note that we are not associated with the University of Alberta, the course Indigenous Canada, or Dan Levy.

Indigenous Canada is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) from the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta that explores Indigenous histories and contemporary issues in 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.

It is free to take the course.

Please sign up for the course and complete the module before the discussion group.

You can go further into the learning by watching videos in which Dan Levy talks about Indigenous issues with professors of the course, including Dr. Tracy Bear and Dr. Paul Gareau.

You are welcome to join us for as many of the discussions as you are able.
