Canada is one of the largest countries in the world and Aboriginals were cut off with next to nothing for Reserves and in most cases it's nothing more than a useless, isolated swamp or rick pile that isn't good for anything. The public is told that if we work on an Indian Reserve our money is tax free but what little we were cut off with part of it was taken back with hydro lines, railways and highways so in most cases that tax free money isn't even worth the paper it's printed on! The Govt controlled the money for Indian education so they were able to control us like a puppet on a string and used to try and hold us back when we tried to do something for ourselves which was still going on in the 1970's when I was getting my career!
