Anthropology and Indigenous Peoples in Canada
This 5-week course is designed from a set of classes I have recently taught at UVic. I have two purposes for offering it: The first is to introduce students to the discipline of anthropology and the second is to show the relationship of anthropology to Indigenous Peoples and the history of Canada. My objective is to answer the calls of many students to make this information more accessible. I also hope that offering classes in this manner may assist those who feel alienated from some forms of learning such as high school or university. The class is free.
