Contending Loyalties of Aboriginal Canadians

Within Canada, members of the Aboriginal populations sometimes struggle to reconcile their loyalties to their own nation and to Canada. At one time in Canada's history, the government tried to assimilate First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people into the predominant white cultures. Many First Nations feel they must maintain a feeling of nationhood among their members within the borders of Canada.
