Canadian identity has been changed from first nations identity, to early Europeans who colonized the land. When people think of Canada, they think of hockey, maple syrup and snowy weather. But, what should be included is the first nations. When talking about Canadian history it is often overlooked is the history before early Europeans came over and settled. This was a very tough time for first nations because the early setters were trying to get rid of them and assimilate them. But just like in the book they kept sticking around like the totem pole in the corner of the room and like the dust eventually settled.
