CREDIT HOURS: 3
The course addresses some basic, but key issues in Aboriginal politics in Canada from an institutional perspective. The goal is to provide students with broad knowledge of the institutional, historical, and current issues surrounding the Aboriginal/Canadian state/Crown relationship and some future trends, as well as gain familiarity with the most important court cases and their impact. By the end of the course, it is expected that students will be able to recognize who the Aboriginal peoples of Canada are, the historical Crown/Aboriginal relationship and its evolution, and a considerable understanding of the current status of Aboriginal politics in Canada.
