First Nations

  • Canada's Aboriginal youth population is growing at triple the national average size
  • Young aboriginals are unlikely to graduate from high school and are far behind of a normal Canadian student generally in terms of completing post secondary education
  • However, Canada is coming to the point where most workers are retiring due to old age and we need the younger population (aboriginals) to help out the economy
  • Hundreds of thousands of young aboriginals won't be able to help due to lack of education which will affects our doctors, engineers, teachers etc
  • they would be given some of their rights and freedom from the Indian Act of 1876
  • They will fight for their health, clean water, education and most importantly equality
