  • Joseph Boyden's The True Tragedy Of Attawapiskat?

    Attawapiskat is a small town in our big country and as a whole we need to look out and help one another.

  • Native Canadians In Canada

    I will be examining the context of Native Canadians in the first world war, while referencing Boyden’s style of integrating that experience in Elijah, Xavier and Peggy. I started this IOP with the assumption that native Canadians were not treated as fairly as the Canadians during the war. That they were not recognised in history and may have had to do extra work from racist undertones. Perhaps seeing that the history could be different than the book details.

  • Alanis Obomsawin Trick Or Treat Analysis

    Last evening, I attended the film Trick or Treat by Alanis Obomsawin. It was a beautifully done film about the issues first nations face in Canada.

  • The Hadza Group Analysis

    Since I began studying the Hadza group it opened up my mind to so many things. I have seen indigenous tribes on television showing us how they live their lives. The things I envy most about them is how freely they live. Free from the responsibilities that we worry about on a daily basis like responsibilities, bills, work, money, I mean the list is endless. They live their lives with no apologies and I admire them for that purpose. Some may agree the way they live their life is like one camping…
