FPST 341 is a class on Globalization and Indigenous Peoples in the First Peoples Studies Program at Concordia University. The point of this class is to discuss globalization from an Indigenous perspective. Students in FPST 341 (2015) have collectively worked to create a comprehensive website outlining the Quebec economic and infrastructure agenda, Plan Nord. This website is to create a dialogue about Plan Nord. It looks at many aspects of the project by the Quebec Government including but not limited to: land rights, economic benefits, ecological reports, sovereignty, education and housing ramifications, as well as the research of different impact assessments on the environment and local populations. While taking on an Indigenous perspective, this site was constructed in an effort to remain impartial in all findings, research, and discussions outlining the benefits of Plan Nord as well as the costs associated with this largescale development plan.
