    1. 1. By: Krysta, teresa, Lacey and kendra<br />The Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples<br />
    2. 2. The 5 W’s<br />When:1991 -1996 when the 4000 page report is finally complete. <br />Why: The Oka Crisis-When the expansions of a 9 hole golf course to an 18 hole crosses onto the burial grounds of the local Mohawk tribe a dispute is broken out. Oka Mayor Jean Ouellette says the land belongs to the municipality. Mohawk tribe member try to win the battle in courts but when the attempt fails, the tribe members use barricades and other forceful methods to keep from the expansion. <br />Who: Brian Dickson a former chief of justice who conducted the terms. People of the deciding council include-Georges Erasmus former chief of the Assembly of First Nations, René Dussault from the Québec Appeal Court, Viola Robinson former president of the Native council of Canada to name a few. <br />What- A Report the government created in response to aboriginal concerns. The main conclusion of the report was too address the relation between Aboriginal people and non aboriginal within Canada. Some of the broader recommendations included the proposal for a new Royal Proclamation; that is, governmental commitment to a new set of ethical principles respecting the relationship which acknowledged and respected Aboriginal cultures and values, the historical origins of Aboriginal nationhood and the inherent right to Aboriginal self-determination.<br />Where-Montreal <br />How- The broad consent of the Commission was moved into a large and complex research agenda. Consultations were held with Aboriginal groups with the development of the research plan. The integrated research plan, which was published in 1993, had 4 theme areas: governance; land and economy; social and cultural issues; and the North. In addition, these themes were addressed from 4 perspectives: historical, women, youth and urban perspectives. Two co-directors were to manage this research program. In its public hearings process, the Commission visited Aboriginal communities across Canada and heard briefs from over 2000 people. More than 350 research studies were commissioned. <br />
    3. 3. The Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples was established to propose practical solutions to stubborn problems. Everything about first nation’s people is summed up in The Royal Commission. From land claims to education, everything is compacted into this one document. Having all these affairs put on The Royal Commission concerns the First Nations Peoples. The fact that their benefits and rights are stated in this document makes them wonder whether the agreement they signed years ago will be altered. Their employment, education, and land are all very important parts for Aboriginal Peoples lives, and are put up as a possible conflict to be changed. One of the biggest problems that exist among Canadians and the Aboriginal peoples are the Land Claims and the use of land. This is another issue that is quickly stated briefly in The Royal Commission. <br />Why was this Important to the Aboriginal Peoples?<br />
    4. 4. Why is this Issue an Imposition of Liberalism on Aboriginal Peoples?<br />Rule of Law- <br />The First Nations Peoples are looking to have special rights that Canadians are not free to have. They feel as though they are not like other Canadians, they want to be granted special rights and recognized as a different people. The Native Peoples in Canada want to be isolated from Canadian society, and create a self government. The Rule of Law is stopping this ruling from happening. Having special rights for the Aboriginal people would create jealousy amongst other Canadians and going against our liberal ideologies of equality. <br />
    5. 5. Aboriginal people didn’t really resist any of the Practices or policies that the Canadian government imposed, but advocated against rule of law. Many native leaders attended hearings for the Royal commission. George Erasmus, One of the representatives for the native peoples, wanted to see native peoples reassert their culture and regain self rule. Erasmus thought that by having sovereignty over their own peoples, it would break the cycle of dependence on the government handouts. <br />Resistance to the Policies or Practices that are Imposed by the Canadian Government<br />
    6. 6. The native peoples were trying to advocate against rule of law because they wanted their own specific laws for their own people and to govern themselves. ultimately this idea was turned down because it was thought to be dangerous to segregate the native culture from mainstream Canadians. <br />Specific Principals of Liberalism that were reinforced and/or Resisted <br />
    7. 7. The Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples was established by the government in order to help the aboriginal peoples with their issues such as the Oka Crisis and the Meech Lake Accord. The attempt to resist the imposition of liberalism through the Royal Commission on Aboriginal People was not successful. Although the government ran a five year assessment and interviewed different tribes to shed light on their issues, the promises made by the government were not followed through. Their goal was to solve certain issues the aboriginal people faced on a daily basis as well as issues created because of the lack of relationship between the aboriginals and the Canadian government. The attempt to resist the imposition of liberalism was not successful because the government began to create a detailed plan to close the economic gap between aboriginals and non-aboriginals, as well as goals for native education, economic development, housing, and health and water services. However, these goals did not get accomplished before the deadline. <br />Explanation on whether or not the attempt to resist the imposition of liberalism was successful<br />
    8. 8. Leave your audience with a question or thought to ponder<br />How come the statistics show that non-aboriginals in Canada still have a significantly different quality of life compared to the aboriginals of Canada, when Canada has set goals to close that gap between these two nations? Should Canada take more action on this issue?<br />
