ENG346H5 • Indigenous First Story Toronto

This course explores the history of Toronto/Tkaronto as it is documented in contemporary Indigenous texts and oral narratives. In addition to engaging with these works to provide a fuller understanding of Indigenous histories, treaties, and laws, this course may draw from archives such as First Story Toronto at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto to shed light on present-day lived experiences. The course asks students to reflect on what it means to be treaty people within this territory, the responsibilities of living in the Toronto area, and how to be more mindful as treaty partners to Indigenous residents within this space and place. Course content may include audio recordings, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, visual art, film, and drama. The course may also include land-based and autoethnographic components.
