Canada's Health Care System
There was a dominant belief in many tribes that before the earth existed, that humans lived in a heavenly world, with animals peacefully. When the earth was created, a god put the animals and humans on at the same time, so the aboriginals believed that the animals and humans were equal.
Aboriginal Beliefs
In Canada there are many sports and activities that we participate in that make us unique as a nation. Hockey is one of them. It brings us together, and it is something we have done for generations. Hockey is something we do at all ages, and it represents our country, by saying: we have thousands of square kilometers of ice, and we managed to make it into something interesting.
1. Aboriginals believe in many things, they are very religious and spiritual people. But rather praying to a single god they prefer to believe in many idols. This could be in the form of a landscape feature, plant, animal, or object.

The health care system that we have in Canada is something that we are known for all around the world. Many know it to be "free health care". But it is far from free. Our health care system is paid for through taxes. This is one of the main reasons why they are so high. The health care system in Canada is much different than those of other countries. When Canadians go to another country, and require health care things are much different. In some countries you may have to pay for it out of your own pocket, and hope that you will be reimbursed by your travel insurance company.
Aboriginals have a very carefree attitude towards homosexuals. Throughout Canada almost every tribe are tolerant towards homosexuals. They believed that is you were a homosexual, you were allowed to cross dress, but were expected to to perform the duties of the other gender.
When someone is sick, rattles are shaken to call the spirit of life. They are also used at a physical and spiritual cleansing ceremony.
Lacrosse is Canada's national summer sport and it is a big part of Canadian culture. It's a team sport and it's of Native American origin. It is an example of First Nations being accepted.

In Canada, Multiculturalism is something that most people are familiar with. Seeing people of different races, and cultures is something that is very normal to pretty much all of us. Canada, unlike the United states is known as the cultural mosaic, as apposed to the United States, commonly referred to as a melting pot socitey. This is one of the ways where Canada is much different than its neighbor to the south. Canada is accepting of all cultures and lets you keep your citizenship in another country as well as having a Canadian one.
