ABORIGINAL ISSUES IN CANADANameInstitution AffiliationCourseDate of SubmissionAboriginal Issues in Canada1.0 IntroductionThe Aboriginal Canadians have for a long time been fighting for land issues. The European settlement in Canada had severe impacts on the original dwellers. The white settlers in Canada are the ones who led to negative changes in the lives of many people. The discussion will dwell on the land history issues to date and the variety of treaties that were laid forth during the acquiring of the land and the continuity of events after the aboriginal land was taken (Dickason & Long, 2011). The paper will give account of history and what the Canadian government has done to improve and control the situation. It will answer the question, what is the history of Aboriginal Land issues to date? The research will dwell on the hypothesis that the treaties are what led to the Aboriginal land issue complication.

According to the report by the Aboriginal justice implementation committee (1999), there were the Manitoba treaties which were narrowed federal government`s version of treaties (Dupuis, et al. 2002). The following is the summary of treaties:1.1 Sovereignty and AllegianceThese were peace and goodwill treaties that were signed between the Indians and the queen. The treaties did not however mean express transfer of powers from Indians; the treaties were referring to all the Indians. The federal government had the recognition of transfer sovereignty and allegiance. The treaties were negotiated via chiefs hence recognizing the political order.1.2 Surrender of landThis was meant to open up the land to accommodate settlement. The treaties meant that the Indians had surrendered their land to the crown and this was forever.1.3 Reserves.These were under the Prairie treaties that promised that there will be a one square mile reserve settlement per a family of five persons.
