Pîkiskwêtânthe Indigenous Learning Series, is a continuous series of decolonizing and anti-racist Indigenous awareness training and professional development workshops. The series is open to Concordia staff, faculty and students.

This workshop introduces participants to the diverse cultures, socio-political structures, traditions and realities of First Nations peoples with an emphasis on the First Nations whose ancestral lands are located in Eastern Canada. It discusses First Nations history prior to the 20th century and examines how the treatment of Indigenous peoples in the last 200 years have contributed to issues that First Nations people still face today. It also presents success stories and highlights organizations and projects that bring positive change.
