First Nations

A number of terms have at all times been used to depict the initial inhabitants of South and

North America for numerous reasons depending on the societal and cultural grounds in which they were initially established.

The phrase ‘First Nations’ was in the beginning used as a reference to Canadian Aboriginal inhabitants who were ethnically neither Metis nor Inut at the end 20th century (Canada & Canada, 2009). The phrase “Aboriginal” comprises of all First Nation, Inuit and Metis individuals, according to Act of 198 of the Constitution.

First Nations Canadians’ have lived in the state now called Canada for over 12,000 years, maybe much longer. Nearly the whole time, they lived very well in a cruel environment, creating everything they required without contaminating the water, air, or even without land destruction or ruining the animals. Every First Nation owned a self-government and acknowledged the independence the rest of the First Nations. All the First Nations developed exclusive systems of government, and composite material cultures such as tools, shelter, clothing etc  (Canada & Canada, 2009).

Many Canadian First Nations of lived primarily from gathering and fishing. They seasonally migrated seasonally to acquire food.  In a particular season, they could hunt huge animals whilst in another they could fish whereas in the fall they could collect berries. Canada’s First Peoples created complex cultures and resided in peace with their environment (Canada, 2001). Additionally everything they owned was created from the land besides them, its animals and plants. First Nations individuals created a number of distinct cultures, each one founded on adaptation to a diverse Canadian setting.  The term First Nations up to date is widely used and broadly accepted as compared to terms like Indians (Timpson, 2009).
