Program Information

School:Carleton University
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Aboriginal Studies
Description:We live in an era of decolonization and reconciliation, in which Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples must grapple with the haunting legacies of racism and cultural violence and find ways to move forward. The interdisciplinary Indigenous Studies program seeks to aid this effort by providing both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students with an in-depth understanding of the historical and contemporary experience of Indigenous peoples in North America and the world.

Following the Mamiwininmowin (Algonquin language) concept of aditawazi nisoditadiwin, or walking in two worlds, this program blends traditional academic instruction with Indigenous approaches to teaching. Coursework in the program covers four main thematic areas: Indigenous peoplehood studies; Indigenous ways of knowing and epistemologies; the history of Indigenous-Settler relations and colonization; and Indigenous recovery, vitalization, and reclamation and decolonization. In fourth year, students will have the option of working with elders or a community organization in a capstone project.
