Overview

The Indigenous North American Study Tour introduces students to diverse Indigenous peoples. It allows students to draw on their knowledge of Indigenous culture to reshape their understanding of history and society, with a focus on resistance. Through a series of online seminars, face-to-face classes and visits to traditional country and sites of significance, students will gain first-hand experiences of Indigenous culture and history in a variety of contemporary contexts.

The tour takes students to Saskatchewan, Canada. It includes day trips to museums and cultural centres in and near the city of Saskatoon, as well as an 11-night camping trip to special sites on reserve lands throughout Saskatchewan.

We will also be travelling with students from the University of Saskatchewan and the University of North Carolina, so you will be working with a diverse group of students.

This experience will allow you to reflect on how Indigenous issues in Canada may manifest themselves in Australian communities, providing an opportunity to examine the issues raised in our Indigenous Studies units in diverse contexts.
