In this course, participants will learn from the many different histories and cultures of the First Peoples of the NWT from pre-contact to 1950. In particular, participants will learn from the Dene, Métis and Inuvialuit, using a holistic approach to the social, economic, cultural, linguistic, and political changes experienced by First Peoples over many centuries. For purposes of comparison, a general survey of First Peoples of the Americas will also be included. This course introduces students to the knowledge of Aboriginal Elders and philosophers as well as some of the major frameworks used by scholars, historians and anthropologists for analyzing and describing change over time. Aboriginal perspectives will be an integral part of course delivery.
