Indigenous Knowledge Commons

Online Courses

This is a showcase of online and web-based courses in the Indigenous Studies field. We invite only the submission of college level courses about the indigenous experience, whether it be Native American, Canadian First Nations, other indigenous peoples, or a global approach to Indigenous Studies. The courses may be academically interdisciplinary or based within a single discipline, but we expect -- in every case -- that the courses will act as a "third knowledge space" drawing on the expertise of both native and non-native scholars, elders and tribal leaders.

Many of the courses presented below relate to the Native Eyes Online Indigenous Studies program at the Institute of American Indian Arts.
