Principle Chief Smith declared the language to be in a state of emergency and the Cherokee Nation Language Department began developing the Cherokee Language Revitalization Project, which aimed to preserve the language through young generations and to revitalize the language as a part of Cherokee community life. Through the Revitalization project, children have been introduced to language immersion beginning at pre-school, and adults have access to some community-based secondary language learning classes. Furthermore, the project has also facilitated gatherings of fluent elderly speakers who help to preserve the language by providing the stories and lexicon that become the basis for language learning curriculum (CherokeePreservation). Much of the project is focused on creating native speakers out of children to preserve the language into perpetuity. This sort of thinking is highly representative of the Cherokee mindset where it is “custom to consider the welfare of the next seven generations in all the decisions [they] make” (Walking Stick

He changed my perspective on those struggling to survive. Another view that changed after this experience was my view on poverty in Canada in a general sense. About 1 in 7 people in Canada live in poverty according to the Low Income Measure. That is an estimated 4.8 million people (CPJ, 2014) . Before seeing the reality, I believed that poverty was almost non-existent in Canada and that those who were dealing with this issue were a minority.
In 1996, 68% of Aboriginal youth were in school contrasted with 83% of non-Aboriginal youth. Wage levels for Aboriginal people groups are straightforwardly connected to school fulfillment levels. As of 2006, the aboriginal population is paid 30% lower than non- aboriginals. Another factor contributing in the discrepancy to the natives is their unpleasant way of living. A great part of the lodging in Aboriginal groups is insufficient and in needing of repair.

y all across Canada there has been a big issue on Aboriginal homelessness, in this paper I will be talking about a program that has been created and planned of to what the program has to offer. Homelessness in Aboriginal population is in need of programs and services to make a change in the lives of those affected. The number has been estimated for homelessness in Canada is between 15,000 to 300,000 individuals experience homelessness in Canada (Segaert, 2012). Fortunately, things are changing slowly, more communities across the country are using point in time counts to determine the number of people who are homeless on a given night, and we are also now accumulating more reliable data on shelter usage (Segaert, 2012). The systemic

The poverty line is a minimum amount of money that working Canadians should reach by each year, the poverty line in Canada is $19,930. According to www.livingwagecanada.ca and www.povertyfreeontario.ca, single adults total earning throughout a year is 64% off of the poverty line. While lone parents are 38% off the poverty line, people who work minimum wage jobs are 12% off the poverty line, working poor is 22% off the poverty line, and the poor welfare make $0 which means they are not close at all to the poverty line. According to Thecanadianencyclopedia.ca, even though the poverty line is 14% the percentage is extremely likely to rise. According to Borgenproject.org poverty can lead to worse education, higher crime rate, and low social mobility.
Even when they are living in cities with high poverty rates, the average citizen of that city tends to be better off than people of visible minorities. Western European immigrants tend to have poverty rates lower than the city’s average poverty rate. While alternatively visible minority immigrants tend to have a poverty rate higher than the average poverty rate of the city. The authors also compared poverty rates of immigrants with their age at when they immigrated to Canada. They found that people who immigrated to Canada when they were 10-19 years old are more likely to be poor than immigrated during earlier or later years of their lives.
It has come to the point where only top ten percent of Canadians see their wealth increase while the bottom ninety percent of the population wealth decreases each year. Poverty and wealth is difficult to measure in terms of geographic dimension. The pictures below demonstrate
The Impact of Domestic Violence on the Aboriginal Community Domestic violence in Aboriginal community is a cause for concern regarding Aboriginal women 's health and safety. According to Kubik, Bourassa, and Hampton (2009) “In Canada, Aboriginal women have faced destruction in their communities and families as a result of multiple forms of oppression.
