How Past Racism Against Indigenous Peoples Is Still Relevent

Indigenous Peoples have always been subjected to unjust oppression by our elected leaders in government; this is something that the people of Canada have voted for. Although Indigenous Peoples are the rightful owners of the land we live on in many parts of Canada, including but not limited to the Parliament buildings in Ottawa, nearly all of British Columbia, and the Maritimes are still unceded – meaning that the land has been stolen from the indigenous Peoples without a treaty.
