INDG-240 - Indigenous Family Support Studies

Minimum Credits: 3 Length: 45 hours Prerequisites: None Delivery Method: On-campus, Online Cost: $351.12 Course Outline:

This course is taught from a nation-specific framework, focusing deeply on the local Ktunaxa nation, while connecting these localized conversations to broader dynamics of First Nations, Aboriginal, and Inuit (referred to inclusively as Indigenous) families. Students will learn from a variety of Indigenouscreated sources, including directly from Indigenous families, support workers, and advocates. Indigenous concepts of family, raising children, and the importance of community, as well as the impacts of child removal on Indigenous nations through various government tactics will be discussed. From this, students will work towards a better understanding of how they can assist in providing culturally appropriate family support and promoting family wellness and safe environments for all children.
