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.

What an incredible journey of learning and unlearning this course has been for me. The course reinvigorated me to continue my spiritual growth, turning to my ancestors through my Ayurvedic and meditation journey—decolonizing my own caste privilege, but continuing to adopting the decolonial history of my community's church ( I need to continue to do the spiritual work within myself and in my own community to decolonize the effects of colonial impact on India and as an uninvited settler here on Turtle Island. Thank you for the gems of your elders and community leaders that will live in my heart. Finding my way back home.

This course was well worth the enrollment fee. High quality material shared by an excellent professor. Made me more knowledgeable about aboriginal issues in Canada, helped me see from an aboriginal perspective, and really highlighted what a poor job our educational system in Canada does at including aboriginal content in the curriculum and how inaccurately it portrays aboriginal and colonial history. More people should take this course - it's enlightening, stereotype-destroying, and makes you think very critically about the subject matter.

Really enjoyed the class and found all the extra course material very beneficial! I have recently been hired as the Elder Support Worker for Homalco First Nations in Campbell River, BC on Vancouver Island and am so grateful for the content I learned because it has really helped me to find common ground with the Elders and enabled me to be more comfortable asking culturally sensitive questions. I hope that you continue to develop more great courses such as this!

a really fascinating look at some of the issues surrounding Aboriginal peoples of Canada. I do think that since the material is now 9 years old and so much has happened since 2013 cleaning up the links and providing updates to the material presented here is in order. Additionally, links to the materials referenced such as the Indian Act or the treaties could be added. Students can search info on their own but why not include them in the course?

T​his course was a wonderful introduction for someone who knows enough to know he knows too little. I work in event planning for my public library, and I consider my role to be a far more freeform version of the Western education system. I wanted to learn more in an effort to be inclusive in manner, and also for a fresh persepective on my work. I look forward to intergrating some ideas into my approach!

Every educator, counsellor, doctor, nurse, and public servant in Canada needs to take this course. It is, without a doubt, the most informative and useful course on Indigenous Peoples in Canada that I have ever taken. I will definitely recommend this to every teacher and teacher's assistant I know, and urge anyone else interested in Indigenous history and current events to take this course. I loved it.

Thank you very much for allowing me to be part of this course. I am grateful for the lessons learned. I am happy to see the movement gaining momentum and the youth especially saying "I matter and I am standing up to make a difference" Thank you Jean-Paul and the assistants. Thank you to my colleague who recommended the course. I know that I am a lot wiser because of it.

I learned so much from this course about Aboriginal Peoples of Canada and the genocide that has taken place over the century and because of the laws to eliminate the aboriginal peoples the systemic issues still exist today. I work with 60% population of aboriginal youth and I have learned of the changes, as an organization and as a person , that need to be made.

thank you

This is my third online course and second one on Indigenous education and culture. I have learned many new facts, more about history and have built within a desire to learn more. Enjoyed the assignments, the forums and the quizzes are important to keep me accountable for my own learning. I appreciate all the work that was put into the creation of this course. Thank you

Exceptional curriculum and interviews/videos from aboriginal academics, writers, activists, etc. Associate Professor Jean-Paul Restoule has an easygoing and holistic style which often belies the profundity of his message. He demystified and elevated indigenous history and culture in a way that leaves me grateful as well as weak from the weight of the knowledge.

I found this course both enjoyable and thoughtful. The lectures focus on a variety of social topics to help learners get a general idea, but to me the exercises were most enlightening to really understand other foundations and ways of education.

Also, I usually do not engage in forums very much, but other people in my session raised very engaging questions :)

Thank you for putting together a thought provoking and informative class about the Aboriginal Worldviews and Education. Though I am not in the educational field, I found the topics interesting and compelling. I learned a lot about a topic that I am unfamiliar with that and will be looking for more content to learn more about aboriginal cultures.

I r​eally enjoyed the Professor's attempt at an informal style, a difficult task for an online course. I loved the medicine wheel centred learning and found myself layering many of the teachings on top of one another in independent understanding. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have access to courses on Indigenous learning from home.

Really enjoyed this course. Very informative, with lots of resources to draw from. Definitely need to carve out time for this one as you need to access some of the teachings on a laptop online not just with the phone app. Something to get used to.

Thank you for offering this course, I have learned a lot and was definitely eye opening.

Fantastic course! I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to explore how ethnicity affects the way we express our views and form opinions and how to better communicate having in mind that context. Completing the course also helped me to further understand where I stand in relation to my own ethnical Silesian haritage.

This is a wonderful course aimed at anyone but would especially recommend for those in Education. You also don't need to be in education. I'm learning more and more about my Anishinaabe heritage through taking courses. I'm grateful for this course igniting the flame within me and I will work to nurture it. Miigwech

Being an Indigenous person myself from India, Asia, I always face this academic void to pursue courses where I can learn about Indigenous culture and issues all around the world. This course is my Beginning and I will definitely draw upon it in my further journey of exploration.I

Istrongly recommend this course.

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!

T​his 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.

This study is beyond my imagination,,as it exceeded my expectations and renewed a passion to study and learn more about indigenous people and their very unique cultural identity. The course is worth more than than any price tag you can ever imagine

This was the best course. I loved the way the information was presented and the additional resources lead me on a wonderful journey of learning and contemplation. I hope that one day I will be able to take some of these classes in person. Miigwetch!

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
