This course explores the diverse knowledge, world views, and aspirations that shape the actions of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit individuals and communities in Canada. Students will examine the historical and contemporary context of those beliefs, values, aspirations, and actions, including the impact of colonization and decolonization. Students will explore the factors that shape world views to develop an understanding of how acknowledging diverse cultures, values, and ways of knowing contributes to truth, reconciliation, and renewed nation-to-nation relationships. Students are also given the opportunity to develop their own problem-solving strategies to build mutual understanding related to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit world views and aspirations.
