The Path I and II: Your Journey through Indigenous Canada and Indigenous Inter-Cultural Intelligence

Course Description

The Path Part I - Your Journey Through Indigenous Canada presents pre-contact societies and cultures and the defining moments that have helped to shape the history of Indigenous peoples in this country we now call Canada, particularly their relationships with European settlers, the British Crown and the Dominion of Canada. The course covers topics such as residential schools, forced Inuit relocations, 60s Scoop, disease epidemics and the treatment of Indigenous peoples in the Canadian justice system. The course will demystify some of the legal issues regarding the Indian Act, historical and modern treaties, Aboriginal law and the Canadian court system in the context of asserting Indigenous rights. Finally, this course will provide some context to better understand the importance of cultural traditions and values of First Nations, Inuit and Metis, and ways to strengthen relationships with Indigenous peoples.

The Path Part II – Indigenous Inter-Cultural Intelligence is suitable for ‘front-facing’ employees and those who interact with First Nations, Inuit and/or Métis regularly. Topics include unconscious and cultural bias, anti-racism, addressing stereotypes, and becoming inter-culturally competent.

This course will be delivered over eight 90-minute segments over four days:
