Indigenous Learning

Heart, mind and spirit

Broadening your knowledge

Enhance your understanding of Indigenous peoples, issues, world views and knowledges. Expand your skills for living and working in culturally diverse communities and organizations.

Cultivating awareness

Indigenous courses, many taught by Indigenous faculty, centre on Indigenous perspectives and issues. A number of courses provide opportunities for in-community and on-the-land learning and include teachings from Elders and other knowledge keepers.

Open Indigenous courses and some Indigenous programs welcome both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students.

Indigenous Learning supports people who want to develop careers in community engagement, community development, social work, nursing, education, leadership and public service.
