=> Oh Kanata! Our Home on Native Land


Video : www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0Hz0O…

by : TheHibbies
The Canadian National Anthem does not truly reflect this land, we created a new rendition of the song that gives acknowledgement to the fact that this country was founded on Indigenous traditional territories. In order to move forward, Canadians (whether Indigenous or Non-Indigenous) must acknowledge what has occurred in our history, and find positive ways of moving forward. As Non-Indigenous Canadians, we need to play our role as allies - and that first step begins with acknowledging what this country was originally founded upon. 

=> How Kanata became Canada 

The name Canada comes from the Iroquoian word kanata, meaning “village.” In August 1535, Jacques Cartier heard two Aboriginal youths refer to the village of Stadacona as Kanata. Cartier wrote the name down in his journal as Canada.

=> The Cree


The tribal name originated with a group of Indigenous people near James Bay whose name was recorded by the French as Kiristinon and later contracted to Cri, spelled Cree in English. Most Cree use this name only when speaking or writing in English and have other, more localized names for themselves. Cree live in areas from Alberta to Québec, a geographic distribution larger than that of any other Native group in Canada.

The major divisions of environment and dialect are the Plains Cree (Alberta and Saskatchewan), Woods Cree (Saskatchewan and Manitoba) and Swampy Cree (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Québec). Subarctic hunting cultures were thinly spread over the land and periodic hardships kept their population low over the centuries. In the 1600s the population is estimated to have been roughly 30 000 and in 1996 was more than 208 000.

=> Canada's First Peoples

The Northwest Coast people have the most diverse languages of any First Peoples group in Canada. It is estimated that there are nineteen distinct languages spoken by the people. The main groups are the Haida, the Tlingit, the Tsimshian, the Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka), and the Salishan.

The Plateau peoples lived in a small region that included the southern interior of British Columbia and Alberta. Historically, the Plateau people of Canada were divided into three main groups: the Athapascan, Interior Salish, and Ktunaxa. These three groups could then be further divided into the eight main Plateau groups: the Tsilhqot'in (formerly the Chilcotin), the Carrier, the Nicola, Secwepemc (formerly the Shuswap), the Stl'atl'imx (formerly the Lillooet), the Okanagan, the Nlaka'pamux (formerly the Thompson), and the Ktunaxa (formerly the Kutenai or Kootenay).

From the Rocky Mountains to the woodlands of Southeastern Manitoba, the native people of the plains spanned the Southern provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. They have been there at least 10,000 years. The main groups are Blackfoot Confederacy, Plains Cree, Plains Ojibwa (the Saulteaux), Sioux (Stoney and Assiniboine).

Ancestors of the Eastern Woodlands people of Canada first arrived in the region 10,000 years ago, at the end of the last Ice Age. The main groups are Ojibwa, Ottawa, Nipissing, Algonquin (not to be mistaken from Algonquian), Maliseet and Mi'kmaq.

The Eastern Woodland Farmers came to the area around Lake Ontario over 12,000 years ago. They inhabited the shores of the Great Lakes to the St. Lawrence River, and up towards Georgian Bay, in Southwestern and South-Central Ontario. The main groups are the Huron, the Neutral, the Petun and the Iroquois.

The Subarctic people occupied a majority of Canada from the Yukon to Newfoundland, including parts of seven provinces and two territories. The main groups are Gwich'in, Han and Tutchone in the Yukon; the Tagish, Tahltan, Kaska, Sekani and Dene (Yellowknife, Dogrib, Hare, Mountain, Slavey, Chipewyan, Beaver, Sarcee) in the northwest; the Tsetsaut; the Inland Tlingit; the Cree, Ojibwa, Saulteaux, Attikamek and Innu in the East.

The people of the Canadian Arctic are known as the Inuit. They used to be called Eskimos, which came from a Native American word for 'eater of raw meat'. Now the Arctic people are officially known as the Inuit, which means 'the people', or singularly, Inuk, which means 'the person'.

=> Native American name controversy

The term Indian is probably the most contentious.  There are a couple of theories about where the term originated, but that’s not the point.  In Canada, ‘Indian’ continues to have legal connotations because of the Indian Act, so you’ll see it used officially as well as colloquially.  There is also a long history of this term being used pejoratively…two good reasons why it doesn’t sit well with everyone.

However, it’s also a term we use a lot internally to talk about ourselves.  Please note that this does not mean it’s always okay for you to use the term.  I tend to suggest that avoiding this term is probably for the best, unless you are specifically referencing the Indian Act. There is a level of sarcasm often associated with its internal use that you probably don’t notice, and probably can’t replicate…so if you are interested in avoiding giving offense, this is a name that you might want to drop from your vocabulary.

I know that Native American is very popular in the US, and is still in use as a way of self-identifying among some older people here in Canada.  It’s a weird thing to hear though in our Canadian context, and ‘Native Canadian’ is just silly.  (Sorry Robert J. Sawyer, I know you like the term and I’m still going to read your books.)

Aboriginal (not to be confused with aborigine) is a term of fairly recent origin, being adopted officially in the Constitution Act of 1982 to refer generally to First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.  Anymore I try only to use this term in the legal sense, where it has a specific meaning.  Some people hate this term because it is increasingly becoming co-opted. I have become one of them. It’s not offensive, per se but it is incredibly generic and increasingly obnoxious as the Canadian government wholeheartedly signs on to its use.

Indigenous tends to have international connotations, so you will hear it used this way ‘officially’ sometimes.  Like aboriginal, it is a general term that includes First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.  I like this term better right now, but that may change.  Again, some people really despise this term, but so far it’s not too widely rejected.

Native is another tricky term.  For some people it only refers to First Nations, and for others (like myself) it’s another ‘catch-all’ term, but a much more informal one than aboriginal or indigenous.  I don’t want to suggest that this is an internal term you can’t use…but it does have some historically pejorative connotations that you may wish to avoid.  A lot of people also contest our use of this term because they want to use it as well (native of Alberta, native to Canada) etc.  I’m not going to argue the point because I just wanted to point out that a lot of us use this term and are okay with it…but it’s a bit like ‘Indian’ in that you are more likely to step on toes if you choose this as the ‘term you’re going to use’.

First Nations refers specifically to that group officially known as ‘Indians’, and does not include Inuit or Métis peoples.  Because many First Nations share similar issues related to reserves, Status and so forth, it’s a good general term for a very diverse group of indigenous nations.  Just remember that you’re leaving other indigenous groups out when you use this term.

Inuit has pretty well replaced eskimo in regular parlance, here in Canada.  Using eskimo here is probably going to get you dirty looks.  Eskimo is still used in Alaska however, and I was lectured once by an Inupiat woman about this, so it didn’t make it onto the “never say this” list.

Métis is not a term you’re going to hear much in the US, and as such is sort of a uniquely Canadian name.  I dealt previously with identity issues related to the term Métis, and its definition is not universally agreed upon.  However, it tends to refer to a specific cultural group rather than people who are of mixed-blood, as native people of mixed-blood often identify as First Nations, or Inuit rather than Métis these days.

Bridge

(A bit of Métis history, according to George.)


We were the bridge
Between the east and the west
The dark forest and the big skies

We were the bridge between
Red and white

Using the Métis bridge 
Canada carried itself
Onto the plains
And up to the highest mountains

So what happened?
We were the bridge to the prairies
The road to the mountains
And they walked
All
Over 
Us


THE MÉTIS

=> Origins of the Métis Nation

The Métis are a distinct group of Canadian people who developed a unique culture that grew out of Canada's fur trade heritage. The Métis are descendants of French Canadians involved in the fur trade, and First Nations people.

The roots of the Métis go back to the first French explorers who penetrated to the interior of Canada, where Canada's Aboriginal People had been living for thousands of years. French Canadian fur traders married and co-habited with Native women. Their offspring became known as Métis, people of mixed blood.

They developed a proud culture, with elements of both people from whom they descended.

=> Coureurs-des-bois 

French Canadian Voyageurs were the main labour force for the fur trade of New France. When the French king made laws forbidding trading by anyone except the monopoly company, many young men broke the law, and moved out into the wilds to trade for furs. They became known as coureurs-des-bois (runners in the woods), running, as it were, from the enforcers of the law protecting monopolies.
