Rated 4 out of 5 by from Important Subject The marginalization of indigenous peoples and cultures, as well as their fight to regain their rights and territories, is important and should be more widely taught. We all know they will never regain all of their territory, it's too late for that, but they are deserving of a voice and have cultural practices that can and should be restored. However, the speaker needs to put more emotion into the lecture. To me, it seemed as though she was just reading from a teleprompter, which served to detract somewhat from the subject itself as it lost some dynamism in the process.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting course I enjoyed hearing this personspeak and hope this is developed into a course with indiginous spokespeople in each segment andmore illustrations. Theprofessor spoke very carefully and respectfully and I would like to learn much more about different cultures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I hope they develop this course As someone wrote, the Professor is not the best speaker in the world, far from that, but this issue is so important today that I hope they develop this course.

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.
