INS407H1: Indigenous Environmental Justice


In this course, we will examine how Indigenous land and water governance have been impacted by colonial policies and extractive capitalist developments. We will discuss how Indigenous peoples negotiate and resist such impacts while also renewing responsibilities with land, water, and animal and plant relations. The course is primarily focused on the North American context, with many case studies taking place in Canada.


Completion of at least 14 FCE, including INS201Y1 and at least two additional INS designator full course equivalents or GGR321H1. Permission of the instructor is required.
