The bitter legacy of Canada’s relationship with indigenous people

By Canadian Press on June 13, 2017.

With a history checkered by residential schools, Indian agents and more instances of abuse, many Indigenous people in Canada wonder what’s worth celebrating. Among those is Isaac Murdoch, from Serpent River First Nation about 150 kilometres west of Sudbury, Ont., who says the history of indigenous people dates back at least 10,000 years.

“Ignoring 10,000 years of our history erases us when they only celebrate 150,” says Murdoch, who is behind the #Resistance150 hashtag on Twitter.
