In the past, Canadian Aboriginals have dealt with many gruesome issues that primarily involved the Canadians opposing them or treating them like ‘‘wards.’’ The Indian Act is a written law which controls the Indian’s lives and it is often amended several times to make Indian lives either peaceful or cruel but especially, cruel. Aboriginals found the Indian Act a massive problem in their lives due to it completely controlling them and how they lived on their reserve.
The Indian Act was constructed to reflect the Canadian government’s primary goal of assimilation. The government anticipated that the process of organized assimilation through legislation would reduce the number of status Indians in Canada, remove the government from the responsibility of First Nations affairs, and make available the land that was currently reserved for First Nations. Without the responsibility of the ‘Indian problem’, the Canadian government would no longer be required to spend limited federal funds on its burdensome inhabitants. However, the ‘Indian problem’ did not go away and instead produced gender-based discrimination towards the women of Canada’s First Nations communities, resulting in a loss of status, status rights, and identity for generations to come.
When European nations discovered the vast new world in the western hemisphere, it sparked many unfortunate and unforeseen events that almost lead to the eradication of the people whom already called this “New World” their home. The article, Were American Indians the Victims of Genocide? Guenter Lewy clearly explains how the deaths of the American Indians cannot be classified as genocide since it did not represent the U. S’s goal; however, the intent of genocide did exist amongst certain groups of people. Depending on how it is looked upon, the argument about whether the deaths of the American Indians could be considered genocide all boils down to which group of people did the killings. To be able to grasp and understand if American Indians
The population growth rate is. This is because the Danish people don 't have enough children to replace the Danish people that die each year.

Criminalization affected the rights of Alaska Natives such as the Tlingit much as it did the Indians in Canada and the lower United States. Sovereignty, fishing and hunting rights for subsistence, and the allowance of potlatches were especially prevalent. An 1872 Alaska court ruling gave Natives the same rights as non-Indians but didn’t recognize Native legal or political institutions. The sovereignty of Alaskan Native tribes was not recognized so the state asserted their own sovereignty and, defying the federal laws, claimed complete jurisdiction over the Natives living within their borders.
Colonialism has been a huge factor that has and will attempt to make aboriginal people conform to new cultural norms. Residential schools have been the most well-known way as to how colonialism affected these people. What society is not aware of is the cruelty of hospitalization of aboriginals, where unethical procedures took place using them as subjects without consent. As Dr Geddes stated during his lecture, the Canadian health care system has racism embedded in it.

Discrimination of Aboriginals in North America Ever since Europeans began to settle in North America, they have been denying Aboriginals their basic human rights.

History is evident of the egregious health disparities between Aboriginal populations and the rest of the Canadian population, especially when it comes to women of native status. The Canadian Constitution Act of 1982 defines the Aboriginal people as a population which includes the Native Indians, Inuit, and the Metis (Government of Canada, 1982). The geographical location of this population ranges across the country - members are part of bands and tribes on reserves or are registered as a Fist Nations individual and reside elsewhere (Statistics Canada, 2011). Aboriginal women of Canada specifically are the victims of human rights violations; especially when it comes to health care access and services; this is evident from the history of oppression
The Aboriginal communities in Canada are isolated from the rest of society, and their issues are often overlooked by the mainstream media. Furthermore, regarding the unsolved cases and other Aboriginal issues, former Prime Minister Stephen Harper stated ‘most’ of the cases are solved and that "… it isn 't really high on our radar, to be honest. "(Kappo, 2014). This reflects the former government’s complete disregard for the extremely important issues that currently affect Aboriginal communities. Although a federal inquiry into this issue has been launched due to pressure from various activist group, this does not eliminate the blatant disregard for Aboriginal issues in Canada.
Within the USA, the government is exclusively calling people of Islam as terrorists, a mislabelling of a whole culture. Within Canada, Islamophobia is only growing to the point where terror acts are being directed towards Muslims. As humans, we are forced to confront terrorism and battle it by being aware that terrorism exists in all forms. It is prevalent amongst all cultures, and must be treated equally for it to disappear. Hate towards Muslims specifically must end.
“A major priority of the Nazi Party was to eliminate racially inferior groups in Germany and across Europe. Discuss how and why they did this” The Nazi part prosecuted many racial and social groups during their reign from 1933-1945.

Introduction to Culture. Poverty is not only a critical problem that affects personal income, housing, or education, but it can even destroy an entire population if not solved. The Aboriginals of Australia are one of the many cultures that is currently losing its identity to impoverish conditions. Within the 50,000 years of existence in the Australian outback, the once prosperous clans of tribesman have dwindled from the reining populace on the continent, to less than a percent of Australians census. These people live by the lifestyle of the land, traditionally by nomadic hunting and gathering.
