The First Nations were there first. They are the original Canadian culture, but the actual society is trying to erase them. The colonization has already put them aside in reserves and tried to “civilize” them by putting them in residential schools. The First Nations must fight against the government to stay in their lands. They are constantly threatened and must fight back to keep their territories. The Natives are stereotyped as Indian living in tepees and carving totem poles. They are not respected, but they are the ones that should be the more respected since they were the first ones there and went through hardship.
