A photo of tree trucks with text, "Indigenous Learning in Local & Global Contexts. Begins September 28. Deepen your understanding of issues facing Indigenous peoples worldwide."

This workshop will be presented and facilitated by Indigenous Training Coordinator, John Croutch, from the Office of Indigenous Initiatives. In this workshop, we look at the hidden history of Canada, a history that has been largely untold that examines the attitudes, legislation and policies of the Crown that erased Indigenous peoples' history from Canadian landscape. We examine how powerful Indigenous nations, critical allies and trading partners were devalued and systematically stripped of their lands, resources and eventually their identities
