Part 2.1 of Quiz

“Twenty years after the “Oka Crisis” We still see Indigenous Peoples on the front line protecting the sacredness of our traditional territories and the sacredness of Mother Earth. We still hear of communities all across Turtle Island trying to protect the little they have left as a result of dishonoured treaty processes and the disrespect the Canadian government has shown these sacred agreements.”

Melina Laboucan-Massimo

  • This passage was one of my favourites in the book. Melina is very cut and dry about the mistreatment of Aboriginals in Canada and how the government so easily disregards any issue to do the Aboriginals. This is an example how any governments power can be unjust when it comes to dealing with ethnic relations, by turning a blind eye to the major issues these people face. Scarce resources are what the aboriginals have been given by the government and it is a conflict every day for them to keep the minimum property they have now.
