Rated 4 out of 5 by from How Does This Course Develop? We would like to see this pilot developed into a course. The pilot had nothing new for us. Hopefully the course will be developed around case studies of the world view of non-dominant cultures around the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Important Topic I don’t love the presentation in this lecture, but I’m giving five stars as an indication of how important I consider the topic and how enthusiastic I am for the completed course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Breadth of Subject Matter Introducing viewers to the complexity of the history, status, and perspectives of the diverse indigenous cultures of the world is an enormously challenging task, so I was impressed and encouraged by the depth and breadth of the instructor's knowledge and expertise. Her level of familiarity and comfort in navigating smoothly between topics such as political/legal history, cosmology, traditional ecological knowledge, and international laws and institutions was very impressive and sets the stage for an excellent survey of this complex set of issues. I very much hope to see a full version of this course made available in the near future and guarantee it will jump toward the front of my watch list.
