Foster homes were claimed to be “better for the children”, but now it is evident that it was an excuse for the Euro-Canadians to stomp out the Native Heritage in Canada. By the 1970’s, approximately 70% of Aboriginal children were taken and placed into Non-Aboriginal homes. The Indigenous children who were taken in began to deal with many social issues themselves . Examples of the impacts of the welfare system on Aboriginal children were that they grew up in conditions of suppressed identity and abuse, experienced psychological and emotional problems, and felt like they did not belong, as they did not fit in the Euro-Canadian society, nor the Aboriginal society.

The English limited monarchy had grown too closeminded in the eyes of those who left. Their system of government relied too heavily on the needs of the lords and nobles and not enough on the lives of the people. The common people grew tired of being neglected and looked elsewhere for a place that would allow them to live their lives as they desired. Without this decision, there would be no democracy in America because no one would have striven for more than one group of people making choices for everyone without the representation they believed they

Not remembering where to drive home from school like remembering the road you passed by millions of time from since you were born. Now I started a chapter in my life, not knowing how to go through it. Being scared of what’s to come how I’d be able to do that or how I’d be able to find that out.
