I think this is a really interesting idea and worth exploring. Too many times we ask our indigenous friends to explain (their life, their culture, their pain) . Providing opportunities to find out for ourselves as part of our own exploration would be great. As the quote in the attachment says "... if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we need to actively relearn history.”

This sounds excellent. Ensure we have First Nations people leading, particularly with the academic institution.

Hi Shirli,
Absolutely! It would be incredible to have First Nations people lead with both content creation and delivery of the course itself. I've also finished the book Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe. Having guest speakers of that quality would be valuable as well.
