Event Details:

We're excited to offer another MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) in partnership with the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre (SLCC). The 12-week course is Indigenous Canada, offered by the University of Alberta. This course explores key issues facing Indigenous peoples today from a historical and critical perspective, highlighting national and local Indigenous-settler relations.

This time around, participants will be expected to watch one module per week on their own time; we will meet virtually once a week to discuss what we learned from that week's module. Our facilitator will send out discussion questions for you to consider while you watch each video and to guide each meeting.

This course is free to attend, but space is limited! Email facilitator Jeanette Bruce at jbruce@whistlerlibrary.ca to sign up, max two spots per person. Please note that we will expect you to attend all 12 sessions, and to come to each meeting prepared to discuss the assigned module.

Can't make it to our weekly meetings? Anyone can complete this course on their own time, for free! Visit https://www.coursera.org/learn/indigenous-canada to get started.
