The Past Creates the Present: Do We Care?


Many of us are so used to seeing Aboriginal people portrayed as victims and so we buy in to the falsehood that such people are authors of their own situation.

In reality, Aboriginals are surviving what many characterize as genocide. This article gives us a reason to see how Aboriginals have suffered and endured in ways most of us can barely imagine. We all need to take some responsibility for what happened.

Canada needs its own Truth and Reconciliation Commission to address the wrongs of the past, so the present will allow First Nations the ability to plot their own destiny.
