Course DescriptionOgitchita Luwatilihunyunih (First Nations translation: strong helper's hands). This course offers students an interdisciplinary approach to address how to become an ally to Aboriginal peoples. Designed for community service students both from mainstream and Aboriginal backgrounds, this course applies an anti-oppression perspective to understand the origins of issues confronting contemporary Aboriginal peoples. To appreciate the process of Aboriginal self-determination, a holistic approach guides the examination of community services and infrastructure responsive to the needs of First Nations' communities. (Formerly IST 910.)
This course will run during the Fall and Winter breaks.
