Colonial lens: 

In this introductory module, you will learn how the narrative of Canadian history is coloured by a colonial lens. We will re-examine history from Indigenous world-views, and how our colonial past and colonial policies have affected the ways in which we see and speak of Indigenous People to this day. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify possible cultural biases shaping Canada’s historical narratives. 
  • Explore historical events shaping the Canadian landscape of which they may not have been aware. 
  • Realize that most history books are written for and by dominant societies and rarely include Indigenous world-views. 
  • Understand Canada's colonialism.
