This program offers an exploration of the precedent-setting case Ktunaxa Nation v. British Columbia which sees the first ever Indigenous freedom of religion challenge to go before the Supreme Court of Canada. It aims to improve Indigenous intercultural competencies for professionals by learning about Indigenous history, culture, land and spirituality.

 

Specific Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding of the practical meaning of reconciliation from an Indigenous perspective;

  • Understanding Indigenous Spirituality – better understanding of what the definition of spirituality is based on Indigenous cultures and traditions;

  • Understanding the importance of preserving Indigenous spirituality in the context of Indigenous resurgence;

  • Understanding the Indigenous assertion that land rights are human rights; and

  • Understanding that decolonization means the recognition of the legal sovereignty for Indigenous Peoples, in other words that Indigenous nations have always had laws and justice, and that these are rooted in, and arise from, their land.
