Summer 2017 Dates TBD
This land-based intense delivery course will critically explore the Dene struggle for self-determination since the establishment of the Indian Brotherhood of the Northwest Territories in 1970. Particular attention will be paid to examining the ways in which the Dene and other Indigenous communities have sought to overcome the ongoing effects of colonialism through a variety of means, including efforts aimed at achieving cultural recognition through land claims, self-government and economic development, and by reconnecting and revitalizing the land-based practices and relationships that form the core of many Indigenous peoples’ identities and ways of life. Short Courses cost $2,500 all-inclusive, including airfare from Yellowknife. KidsU will be running, and kids are welcome at no extra cost. Sliding scale available.
This course is also being offered as a UBC International Experience. Current UBC students can apply using the link below.
