A Questionable World For First Nations And Metis

749 words - 3 pages

As one looks back to times when hardships fell on First Nations in respect to education, treaties, and the justice system what you will find written in this essay is a comparison to what was then and what is now.
The world of the First Nation’s treaties questions ignorance of oral history, the way the treaties were upheld but not respected and the common agreements between Canadian government and aboriginal law. The ignorance is how the oral history of first nations was ignored and forgotten. The oral history states that the land was to be shared and not given away; it cannot be bought or sold. First Nations were placed on the land as guardians. The government ignored this oral agreement and made a written agreement that stated that the First Nations “ceded and surrendered” the land, stripping them of their claim to it. It wasn’t until modern day that the treaties have been recognised, oral and written. First Nations voices are finally being heard about their land, but still have negotiations going on to try and repair the damage that was done when the oral history was ignored, but it is still a low priority for the government.
Secondly I am going to talk about First Nations education in the residential schools, modern day education, and how first nations lost their identity in the residential school system. Residential schools were funded by the federal government and ran by various churches. The residential schools removed first nation’s children from their homes and forced them into a schooling system that had lower standards of education than that of non-aboriginal schools. First Nations children were stripped of their identity once they arrived at the schools and taught “the proper Christian” way of life, not the way of their own culture. In modern day education in select communities the first nations bands have joined forces and either had a first nations curriculum implemented in the course loads or have had the respective provincial governments build, staff, and teach first nations curriculums around their beliefs.
The first nations have their own version of the justice systems within their present day communities both past and present in regards to their self-governed just system, aboriginal...
