Pretty easy, overall.
This course provides a lot of information to help understand the social problems and inequalities within the Indigenous communities. There is a lot of false information and stereotypes and prejudice just due to lack of education. This professor is amazing and whether it is a required class or not I encourage everyone to take it. If you have an elective slot to fill take this class. You will not regret it.
I gained a lot of information that has helped me understand the issues that Indigenous people in Canada are facing. Ignorance to the past and how it affects our current society is not acceptable. This is Canadian history, the real Canadian history. It is not sugar-coated and told from the Indigenous point of view. Not until you place yourself in someone else shoes will you truly understand. That is what this course helped me to do.

Advice for students:
The class is interesting and cultural relevant so you will not be bored. Make sure to play close attention to ALL of the powerpoint presentations as well as in class presentations and guest speakers as you will be tested on them for the final exam. Make sure to properly format and cite your essays and term papers as this is where people lost the majority of the marks. If in doubt cite it to save an upsetting mark. The textbook that is "required" is not needed as everything is covered in class. As long as you attend and pay attention and take notes you will enjoy the class and obtain a fair grade as well.
