Being a British colony at the time, Canada was dragged into the war that did not impact the country in any way, yet thousands of Canadians volunteered to devote their lives for their nation.

The Mohawk and the Seneca were the first to discuss laws, and passed them to the Oneida and the Cayuga, with final decision by the Onondaga (Keepers of the Council Fire) – confirm if others in agreement, or decide in case of disagreement (Iroquois League). The confederacy was very successful in uniting the nations and creating peace throughout. The peace had lasted for many years but only started to crumble due to population decline and change in their traditional ways. This change in traditional ways was due to the dependence on trade between the English and French. This started conflict between the nations and allowed the Iroquois to become “lazy” and search for easy and more efficient ways to living.
In April and May of 1877, Joseph and his brother Ollokot met three times with General Howard and others trying to convince them that although the Nez Perce did not want to fight, they had the right to stay in the Wallowa Valley.

During 1978, The Longest basically Walk generally was organized to support tribal sovereignty and particularly bring sort of more attention to Indian affairs. The absolute biggest event to specifically help AIM actually was the occupation of the Bureau of Indian Affairs building which basically helped AIM kind of present their 20 points to the kind of White House during the Trail of Broken Treaties march in Washington D.C.

These 20 points really were solutions to problems of very Native Americans that the US government failed to make an effort to fix or improve, which basically is quite significant.

I can't speak to the ideals and aspirations of each individual Québécois, but I think the simplest answer is that, historically, Québec and Canada have two very separate (yet parallel?) histories. Unlike territories and nations that have been gradually annexed and welcomed into their current countries, Québec was taken much more forcefully by the British and the result was not favorable for the inhabitants of the former French colony. The British were not kind to the French in North America... as evidenced by their expulsion of the Acadians (many of whom relocated to Louisiana, where they now call themselves
