VIC-1042 Credit

Aboriginal people are overrepresented both as victims and offenders. Students explore the impact of the residential schools, effects of colonialism on traditional values and culture, as well as structural victimization. Students critically examine and assess Canadas principal approaches to addressing victimization and offending by and against Aboriginal peoples. Through discussion and experiential learning from an Aboriginal perspective, students gain insight and understanding of Aboriginal teachings, Aboriginal worldview, culturally relevant healing, crime prevention and restorative justice.
