Current Issues in Indigenous Relations

Devel­op foun­da­tion­al knowl­edge to under­stand Cana­da and Alberta’s colo­nial land­scape and what it means to Indige­nous and Non-Indige­nous rela­tions.

Hav­ing devel­oped an under­stand­ing of Canada’s colo­nial land­scape and how it con­tin­ues to unfold and impact Indige­nous and Non-Indige­nous rela­tions, stu­dents will be guid­ed toward an in-depth under­stand­ing of what it means to be an ally, how we are all treaty peo­ple, and the unique roles and respon­si­bil­i­ties that allies have in redress­ing and revi­tal­iz­ing the true spir­it and intent of treaties in every day practices.
