There is a great concern to today’s inequity regarding Aboriginal people’s health, education, culture and language. Stereotypes and racism are preventing the Aboriginal people from seeking the benefits they deserve. As Treaty People in Canada, reconciliation must be a top priority to support the healing process of Canada’s history. The treaty relationship has a significant impact on all Saskatchewan and Canadian citizen’s personal beliefs, societal and political positions, and the process of reconciliation.
Relations between the Indigenous People of Canada and first settlers have been a tumultuous and often dark chapter of Canada’s geography. The movie Avatar is a fair comparison to the Indigenous people and first settlers of Canada because of the greed for resources, attempts at assimilation and shared Aboriginal culture. The first settlers of Canada were notorious for their greed of resources, much that belonged to the Indigenous people. In order to access the economic base, the Europeans pushed out the Indigenous from their homes into reserves. As well, mankind attempted to push out the Na’vi to access the land and precious minerals in the movie Avatar.
Canada is a nation that prides itself on opportunity and freedom. However, the treatment of Canada’s aboriginal community says otherwise. Although Canada is incredibly welcoming to new immigrants that want a fresh start, the original occupants, Aboriginal people, are still being mistreated today. Aboriginal people are described as the original people or indigenous occupants of a particular country (Hutchings, 2016). Unfortunately, Aboriginal people have been exploited in Canada for decades, which has resulted in high levels of gender and class oppression.
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. Stripping indigenous people of the proper health care which they have the right to receive, but kept from due to their racial status.
The native Canadians have a long history and rich culture that has helped shape what Canada is today. From the beginning of time the natives were never treated the same as non-native Canadians. As an outcome of the inequality and unfairness towards the natives and their health they are prone to diseases. Native individuals stay at higher danger for illness and faster death comparing to non-Aboriginal individuals. Chronic diseases, for example, diabetes and coronary illness are on the increment.
The Greenland Vikings’ Collapse The origin of the Greenland Vikings began as a violent one. In the 960s, Thorvald Asvaldsson in Norway murders a man, which results in his exile. Thorvald, with his young son Eric, move to Iceland. Like his father, Erik, known as Erik the Red, murders two men in the 980s, which results in his banishment.
The University of Winnipeg has approved a requirement that all undergraduate students complete one Indigenous studies course in order to graduate, which has left some asking whether the University of Manitoba should do the same. The goal of the requirement at the University of Winnipeg is to develop “mutual respect and understanding” (Narine, 2015) between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. The approval came following an article in Maclean’s magazine stating that Winnipeg is where the country’s racism problem is at its worst (Macdonald, 2015) due to the preventable 2008 death of Brian Sinclair, who was left to wait for treatment in a Winnipeg emergency room for 34 hours, and was sparked by the 2014 death of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine, one
The Inuit and Haida The tribes Inuit and Haida are uniquely different groups of people. They all do things different from each other ,but with some similarity . Life of these two tribes are successful for their group.
Global warming was significant to the Inuit people since it was easier to receive fresh water. Fresh water was difficult to collect because most of the snow was polluted and unsafe to drink. Also, the purest water was difficult to receive. First, at 14:47, it shows how the Inuit people were breaking the ground to find fresh water that was hidden inside. This is an example how the Inuit people were searching for fresh water.
A multiple factors are responsible to contribute development of obesity, some may be hereditary or biological traits that differ between different individuals related to body weight, environmental and socioeconomic and behavioural factors. Excess body weight also affects quality of life a person lives, education (difficulty in concentration), income potential and increases risk of mortality . Lifestyle modification is one of the important aspects to overcome this problem of obesity.
