Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This course is incredible and I loved the professor's deep knowledge of the importance of language and culture. She also has a thorough understanding of the various ways indigenous cultures continue to advocate for their lands and resources. Please continue to produce this course. We need this wisdom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pilot! This is exceptionally good pilot. I do think courses on native cultures and peoples are must have for students of all ages. So many different stories, histories and missed opportunities in a learning like this. I hope Wondrium will do a full course with this professor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Presentation! This pilot is magnificent and makes me hope the full course will be offered soon. This professor is highly engaging, compassionate, and obviously extremely knowledgeable; she brings an invaluable message to us at this critical time of human and earth history. I'm so glad that at least I could enjoy this professor's pilot program, and I hope for more. Thank you. "Thinking About Indigenous Cultures of the World"

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 Excited about subject matter, needs better deliver I am fascinated by native cultures and would love this course. However, please make this course more dynamic and attention grabbing instead of a monotone lecture skipping around.
