I really enjoyed this course. I liked that it was taught by indigenous peoples from their perspective. I feel much more confident in my knowledge regarding indigenous issues and traditions. Thank you!

I found this course to be very informative. Thank you for the opportunity to see our shared history from another perspective. I hope this is as groundbreaking for my fellow Canadians as it was for me.

Interesting course giving a good overview of the many issues faced by the Indigenous community in Canada. Course is recommended with a caveat that it seems to be one-sided and presented from a vae victis perspective. Still, some very good and useful information.

While this course added to my knowledge about the history of Indigenous people and their culture I would have liked more indepth information about the history of the effects of colonization. I am upset that none of this was taught in my educational experience.

I enjoyed the teachings throughout this course but found the assessment questions were often poorly worded and often addressed facts rather than broad concepts and understandings. The wording often made it difficult to ascertain what was actually being asked.

I loved this course and found it to be very informative, and I will heartily recommend it to others. It was unfortunate, though, that there were a couple of missing resources, a number of typos and grammatical errors, and some poorly designed quiz questions.

Definitely an eye-opening introduction to the masked history of North America. There is so much more to learn and experience in order to truly get an authentic understanding, I believe that requires meeting people, working for them and amplifying their voice.

Great course, I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. My only suggestion would be to add more interviews and conversational elements, as the prompter course reading can be somewhat dry at times. That said would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone.

Really enjoyed the course and learned much I was not aware of. Perhaps the course should be updated to reflect current (upto 2021) updates to some items mentioned. For example status of TRC CALLS TO ACTION and MMIW inquiry updates etc...thanks for this!

learned a lot more about indigineous people and how they are not like the sterotypes that the colonizer want us to believe. Learned about their culture which is focused on the family and the environment and the importance of the past being in the present.

I liked the course content and the instructors. I learned a great deal. Sometimes I found the multiple choice questions to be worded in a way that was confusing. I'm not sure this approach assesses learning as much as tricking people into the wrong answer.

It was a good course and excellent value, considering it was free. I learned a lot and many things that I wasn't aware or never thought about. The lecturers were very good and became familiar to me over the weeks,. like friends and I began to trust them.

Learned a lot. Thanks. Certainly helps to include thoughts of Indigenous History and World View and I see more and more that they are claiming their rightful place. Really understand the injustice and also that there is a long way to go to correct it.

I definitely think this course is good for folks just starting to learn! It would be nice to see nations being pronounced as correctly as possible to ensure that Indigenous languages are being respected from the get-go. Definitely recommend this course!

Very informative. Did not feel the information generalized First Nations. Would find it beneficial to connect more with the modern reader (i.e Comparisons). Lots of spelling mistakes which could use fixing up. Overall beneficial course; would recommend.

It is a good mix of things I know and those I didn't. I very much appreciated the accompanying visuals (photos and videos) and can only recommend that you increase them wherever possible as they make the learning come alive and appeal to a wider base.

I learned a great deal. The presenters were knowledgeable, the information was detailed. My only critique is that sometimes the questions were a bit "trivial pursuit"... the main ideas weren't always the things being tested. But overall, very helpful.

I found that some of the translation from spoken to text was slightly off throughout the course; however, for an overview of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, it was very insightful. Thank you for the history lesson that I should have had in my childhood.

A very good introduction to indigenous history of Canada. My only complaint is the there was no mention of the Kelowna Accord that the Harper government abandoned it's potential benefits and the impact of the government's failure to ratify the accord.

Great learning experience, but some of the quizzes could be improved upon. Occasionally the quizzes seem programmed incorrectly and a couple questions in a couple modules didn't seem related to the material that was presented. Otherwise, great course.

Ce cour m'a permis de mieux comprendre la réalité actuelle des autochtones causé par l'arrivée des européens. Les conséquences des pensionnats autochtones et des tentatives d'assimilation du gouvernement Canadien envers les Premières Nation du Canada.

The course was interesting and put together very well. I learned a lot. Sometimes the guest speakers didn't really align with the topic of the week. I really liked the way the art by Leah Dorion was incorporated. She did a wonderful job explaining.

Great course but I never got a certificate that I paid for, and finding it difficult to contact anyone to assist this issue. There is no customer service help obvious on the website. Still searching for assistance. Reply emails are undeliverable.

I found this a very well done presentation. There was a lot to learn, and I particularly appreciated the inclusion of Dorion's artwork and her interpretation. It was a lovely accessory to the didactic part of the course. Thank you very much!

Very informational. There are a handful of grammatical errors, and it's clearly a low-budget production. If you're interested in learning (even just a bit) about Indigenous people, and their shared history with Canada, this is a worthwhile course.

I found it educational, informative. It did move a part of me to shift my views and broaden my perspective of our First Nations, but I also felt the information provided the motivation to discover and ask questions about my own native ancestry.
