Overview

The 8th Fire

The relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people has reached a critical mass. Indigenous people are the fastest growing population in Canada and the birth rate is not declining. Indigenous people have a unique place within the Canadian context. Navigating both cultural and political landmines will determine the success of the relationship of the professional in various situations. Using sociological theories as the basis, this interactive, debate based course explores the history of the relationship, the common myths, and steps forward. The 8th Fire is an Anishnaabe prophecy that talks about the relationship between the Native and non-Native people, and in the 8th Fire, both groups need to understand one another and learn from one another.
