Did you get a chance to watch this episode of the 8th Fire: http://www.cbc.ca/doczone/8thfire/2011/11/indigenious-in-the-city.html ?
Here are some questions that came to my mind. Perhaps you can help me answer them.
1) What do we need to know about history to help us understand how we got to this point?
2) What prejudices or stereotypes of First Nations people do we hold?
3) What are the solutions to some of the problems brought on by colonialism?
Take some time to reflect. Talk to your parents and your peers, and look at the other comments. Be honest, thoughtful, and open. There are no right or wrong answers.
