What International Students Know About Canada's Indigenous Peoples And Histories

Adam Aly, Ketzia Gregoro, Serriz Peña and Ivan Wat focused on the experiences of international students in Scarborough, though not all necessarily studying at UTSC.  They found that 

participants possessed limited knowledge and access to resources, that most of their knowledge was acquired through the university, and that sense of personal obligation and the challenges of integrating into Canadian society significantly impacted the willingness and capacity to learn about Indigenous peoples. We recommend that changes be made to university curricula, promotion of university Indigenous events and groups be improved, and incentives be provided for participation to increase students' exposure to, and interest in, Indigenous histories and cultures.
