From Issue No. 269 | May 21, 2018

A free online course you can take, if you want it for academic credit then there are some charges. Apparently over 60,000 Canadians are already signed up. It is very affordable and the sylabus looks great. I would encourage all BHN subscribers to enroll.

As subscribers will be aware, over the past several years, as editor of BHN I have been trying to fill in the many gaps in my knowlege of Canadian history, particularly in relation to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission findings. This course offers an organized base for further reading. To sign up, go to https://www.coursera.org/learn/indigenous-canada. Starts May 14, 2018.

About this course: Indigenous Canada is a 12-lesson Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) 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. Topics for the 12 lessons include the fur trade and other exchange relationships, land claims and environmental impacts, legal systems and rights, political conflicts and alliances, Indigenous political activism, and contemporary Indigenous life, art and its expressions.
