• Webinar: Indigenous History 101

    1-2pm ET

    CSAE is thrilled to offer a new webinar series in partnership with Indigenous Works. Learn more about the first webinar below.

    This one hour session guided by Indigenous Works will provide an introduction to the history of Indigenous peoples in the land that is now called Canada.  During our time together we will:

    • Explore the complex and well adapted societies that existed before European settlers came to Turtle Island (“North America”)
    • Examine the impacts of colonization and the problem of a pan-Indigenous approach to Reconciliation
    • Engage in circle discussion (“Q&A”) about how to integrate these learnings in the spirit of ReconciliAction.

    By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:

    • Differentiate between First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples and understand the definitions for ‘Indigenous’ and ‘Aboriginal’ and when to use these terms.
    • Understand how contact with Europeans and subsequent government policies and Treaties changed the socio-economic circumstances of Indigenous peoples in significant ways and the important connections to today’s current issues, challenges, and opportunities.
    • Explain how exclusionary policies have negatively impacted Indigenous peoples’ opportunities to fully participate in the Canadian economy and the inclusion pathways that are being developed.
    • Understand what your organization can do to improve your knowledge capital and educate your staff about Indigenous history and the impacts of colonization and Indigenous concepts of wellbeing, self-determination, and economic reconciliation.
