This course helps to explore indigenous Canada deeply. I work in the museum where there is a huge exhibition about indigenous people of Northern America and wanted to have a deeper understanding of our collection and different traditions connected with it.

The only reason why I didn't give 5 stars to this course is that I would like to have a little shorter version of it, pointing more attention to cultural and historical developments of different nations and less to the exact dates and personalities.

This is a great course! I learned a great deal from it.

Great course! I would recommend this course to all Canadians.

Terrific and informative. Well organized.
