INDIGENOUS GOVERNANCE (ONLINE)

The Canadian population has received little to no education about how the First People of Canada have been governed since the "Indian Problem" needed to be "solved". From becoming wards of the Monarch, to the creation of the Indian Act, to the residential school systems, to what remaining rights we have as the First People, this course will provide a better understanding of where we are as a country before we begin the Truth and Reconciliation conversation.
 
This program will focus on topics such as land, leadership, financials, business, education, citizenship, decision making and nation to nation relationships. As a collective nation, these are important to explore. Other topics that will also be covered are self-government, treaties and teachings of future governance based on land, traditional values, knowledge and culture.
 
Participation in Indigenous Governance will give a deeper understanding of what the Indigenous reality is, and dig into the roots of how we came to a point where we have “reconciliation”. This program is open to professionals, students, the general public, or anyone who wants a foundation of knowledge that guarantees change and understanding of the Indigenous perspective. 
This course will be delivered by Knowledge Keeper Bentley Cheechoo.
