Need to embed First Nation, Métis, and Inuit history into all history courses: one student’s experiences

Patricia Nagle, a University of Waterloo student, describes their experience of learning (pdf) about Indigenous history in various history classes throughout their time at Waterloo. In relation to one role Universities must play in reconciliation, Patricia sums it up very well:

[Indigenization] can be done by improving general history courses that explore the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous in all areas of Canada. By incorporating this history more thoroughly students may more easily see the impact it has had in their own lives, the Indigenous peoples and Canada as a whole. It may also encourage students to work together in helping our nation prosper.

Deep thanks to Patricia for sharing their experiences!
