To discover information on the treatment of aboriginal youth by the governments of Canada and Australia, as well as the similarities and differences of treatment, we must take a closer look back at both countries history and also at the period when the Juvenile Delinquent Act was enacted. In earlier stages of Canadian history, the government enrolled Aboriginal youth into residential schools. The goal of a residential school was to erase the Aboriginal culture from their youth and implement Canadian ideologies. While
This small act of defiant created the “Dominoes Effect”, her soft and humble voice made a loud and long impact on Canadian society (Thomson, Colin A. 1986). Viola small movement of civil disobedience and discourse prompted a larger organisation to create a chain of civil events to liberate and unify African Canadian to act against the unwritten broken rules of Jim Crow laws that are were practice in provinces across Canada (Thomson, Colin A. 1986). Viola Desmond case was an important one to the NAACP, as they saw this as an opportunity to highlight black issues so they organize three different marches (Walker, Barrington 2012) .
However there have already been similar reports done on the subject of residential schools such as the 1907 report done by, according to King, “Dr. Peter Bryce, the chief medical officer for Indian affairs in Canada…he called the health conditions at residential schools ‘a national crime’” (2015). The commission issued 94 recommendations to the parliament but, the prime minister answered with a thank you and an underwhelming response stating a long time has been spent on the report and there were many recommendations (King, 2015). Throughout the history of Canada the government has put aside the Aboriginal voices, contributing to the silencing and oppression of the Aboriginal population. The more Canada neglects to listen to Aboriginal voices, the more it contributes to the continuation of colonialism in Canada.
Realist perspective is used to describe the epistemological positivist and empiricist approach that pertains to the quantitative methodology to determine the risk factors associated with self-harming behaviors (Bryman, 1984). The question of determining the risk factors contributing to the level of self-harm in Aboriginal youth can be deduced from a causal relationship (Baum, 1995; Mason, 2012). The positivist philosophy will assume that there are risk factors that lead to self-harm in Canadian Aboriginal Youth, developing the research question and generating data to answer that question (Green & Thorogood, 2014). The quantitative data will be collected based on value-free assumptions, objectivity, and the reductionist theoretical framework by the researcher (Green & Thorogold, 2014; Yilmaz, 2013). The method to collect the data will be by pre-developing close-ended survey questions using a structured
Over the past few decades, there has been many distinct perspectives and conflicts surrounding the historical context between the Indigenous peoples in Canada and the Canadian Government. In source one, the author P.J Anderson is trying to convey that the absolute goal of the Indian Residential School system in Canada has been to assimilate the Indian nation and provide them with guidance to “ forget their Indian habits”, and become educated of the “ arts of civilized life”, in order to help them integrate into society and “become one” with their “White brethren”. It is clearly evident throughout the source that the author is supportive of the Indian residential school system and strongly believes that the Indian residential School System
Aboriginals losing their cultural identity negatively impacted them because when the State government agencies removed them from their homes , they were then taught to reject their Indigenous heritage and most importantly were then forced to adopt white culture. This may of caused them to feel ashamed of their Indigenous culture as the stolen children were never told who their ancestors plus, who their biological families were. In addition, another negative experience under the policy of Assimilation that influenced many Aboriginals in losing their entire culture was being forbidden to speak their traditional languages. That is, because when the Aboriginal children were adopted by white families, their names were often changed meaning that they had to get rid of their traditional Indigenous name that their families had given them at birth

Evidence of this was when war factories shut down because war supplies were no longer needed now that the war had ended, this left many people unemployed (Canadian War Museum). This shows that World War I was a means of income and jobs for many people and as it came to an end so did their career and wealth. Similarly, after the soldiers returned from war, they had no jobs. This was the result of Canada’s fragile economy, which had difficulty employing and supporting demobilized soldiers and left many people jobless(Reilly, Skikavich). The nation as a whole was upset with the government, as they believed that it was the government’s duty to find a concrete solution for this problem (Reilly, Skikavich).
