New course at U of A to counter anti-Indigenous stereotypes

A course has been launched at the University of Alberta to help students and the public become better allies to Indigenous people.

"Countering Stereotypes of Indigenous Peoples" addresses 10 common colonial misconceptions including stereotypes involving Indigenous mascotry and Canadian benevolence. 

The course also teaches media analysis and helps people make interventions with family and friends. 

The course is available to students and members of the public. It's entirely online, asynchronous and more information is available here.
