Transcript of Quebec Act
Was a fight for land and rights!
Red River Rebellion!
The Indian act gave Government more power over the aboriginal people.
Indian act 1900s
The Nisga'a Treaty has been ongoing for over 100 years
The Red River Rebellion is a uprising in the Mètis colonies. This all started because a large chunk of Rupert's Land (Known as Canada now) was being given to the new Nation of Canada. The Mètis were scared that they would lose their culture and land cause of the fast growing country Canada. The Mètis people fought Canada for a year winning and losing battles. After the war, Canada made a agreement to form Manitoba for the Metis people and also give rights but not equal to the average English man.
On June 22, 1774 the Quebec act was signed. Quebec act was an act for making more effective supply for the Government of the Province of Quebec in North America. The original intent of the Royal proclamation in 1763 on October 7th, was to slow the uncontrolled western expansion of the colonies and tightly control the relationship between First Nations and the colonies. It was land in Quebec, taken by a treaty.
The Government wanted to expand and not worry about the aboriginal people so the Indian act gave the department of Indian affairs more authority over the Aboriginal people. The Government gave the indian people less rights and took their land. The Indian people also had no say in legal matters effecting them or things around them.
The Nisga'a treaty took place on May 11th, 2000, in Victoria, British Columbia. The interaction was about the Nisga'a people creating a treaty to change some of the 'Rules' given to them by the Government over 100 years ago. The treaty had 12 major changes, some positive and some negative. The treaty has made the Nisga'a people more land, and money than any other First Nations tribe, not to mention they have their own Government, which has more power and responsibility than other tribes.
The 2000 square kilometers given to the Nisga'a
Will talk about the First Nations and how the Canadian Government affected them. From the 1700 when the British and French first showed up to the 2000's and how we're still affecting them. From the Quebec act, Red River Rebellion, Indian act and the Nisga'a Treaty.
Their current relationship is un-trustful and dishonest. The Government and First Nations don't like each other cause of all the the problems the Government cause's the First Nations from holding a kid ransom to draining the sumas prairie and making it farm land.
- The Government can stop getting involved in the First Nations business and forcing them them to give away personal information
- The reason why their is tension between the First Nations and Canadian government is because the government never trusts or communicates with First Nations so they always assume things about the First Nations and never agree on things.
-The First Nations could agree more with the Government and give them a chance. (same goes for Government)
Affairs of First Nations and the Canadian Government!
