This course will examine Indigenous worldviews, philosophies, and values as they relate to commerce, exchange, and capital. It will explore Indigenous resurgence, seeking to understand the different ways in which Indigenous peoples are reclaiming and reimagining relationships in business and beyond. It will critically examine how colonization has impacted present relations between Indigenous peoples and non-Indigenous peoples in business contexts, and begin to explore strategies for decolonization in this space. Students will be encouraged to examine their own biases and worldviews as they learn how to become effective and supportive allies for Indigenous peoples.
Requirements: This course is restricted to students enrolled in the 3rd or 4th year of their program or 2nd year Commerce students.
