Many free ex-indentured servants without a plot of land are unhappy about Berkeley's friendly policies toward the Indians, whose thriving fur trade the governor monopolized. Bacon was unsatisfied by Berkeley's governing of the Chesapeake region and wanted him to favor the colonists rather than the Indians. (Pg. 68) The Royal Commission describes Bacon's resentment as jealousy of the Governor's lucre of beaver and otter trade with the Indians. Although trading with the Natives were prohibited, Berkeley privately gave commission to some of his friends to trade with them and that they supply the Indians with powder, shot, etc.
In the passage it said, “Quebecers demanding a special status have made two mistakes. One, is they under estimate their ability to inherit French heritage. And to protect the French language. The other, is that they took Quebec for their motherland rather than Canada”. And to back up this statement, they quote Pierre Trudeau, “They should not look for their identity in the constitution but rather in their confidence in themselves, and in their rights as citizens equal to all other citizens of Canada.” The article then brings up a very interesting point, and I don’t think many Canadians know this.
Main Points The Hurons were very important to the early French settlers. They were not only a great source of fur trade to French, but also French missionaries lived with them and expanded their religious practices to convert the First Nations people to Christianity. They fought alongside the French to protect themselves and French against Iroquois. For economic incentive and settlement, French didn’t bother to learned native people’s culture. The European colonizers were not happy with the Indians’ customs but could not avoid liking their sagacity in economic and political issues The Huron assumed a dominant position in these trading relationships and the Jesuits record that when the Algonquians had dealings with them, they did so in the Huron language since the latter did not bother to learn Algonkia-1As trade with the French increased, the Huron began to appreciate French goods and to want more of them.
Due to the cultural opposites between the Europeans and the Natives, there was a lot of effort needed on both sides to try to get to know the other culture. It was especially strange for the Europeans. For example, the religious beliefs of the Natives differed greatly from that of the Europeans.(doc. 1) A group of Natives seen by Amerigo Vespucci made no sacrifices or had any holy temple or place of prayer. (doc.
I do not think that this revolution should be hailed as quiet because it really wasn’t. Yes, there was no fighting and there were no riots or anything of the sort, but with the exploding mailboxes, and the kidnapping and extortion, this revolution was anything but quiet. However, I do believe that the end result really was a great thing. Even though they were French-Canadians, the inhabitants of Quebec were still Canadians and they deserved to be comfortable with their language and culture in their home. It’s understandable why they acted the way they did because the rest of Canada never really paid much attention to them because of the conflicts they endured in past events, such as during the Boer War, Naval Crisis, Riel Rebellion, and the Conscription Crisis- just to name a few.
Students in Ontario taking English should only study Canadian literature because we are completely swamped and more influenced by the American culture around us. Although Canadian tradition has always been a “branch plant” of another country starting with England and France; meaning that our own culture has never had the chance to develop since we have always been under the thumb of a more powerful foreign culture. For years, a student in Ontario would study Shakespeare and other British writers; even today they may also study American authors such as Fitzgerald. It’s evident that many schools limit a student’s exposure to the Canadian novel to ISP reading lists. In this sense, Canada is an attic in which we have stored American and British literature without considering our own.
From a person opinion, a country’s national identity is one of the only forms of groups, which almost everyone is theoretically capable of joining. Kumar (2006) points out that the various causative factors that have made scholars assert that Canada lacks national identity include the Quebec nationalism, Aboriginal rights, Western alienation and changing patterns of immigrations and citizenship. This paper will be analyzing Canada’s lack of identity and the key issues that have convoluted Canada’s search for national identity (Kumar, 2006). Canada has been on the creation of national identity for quite a long time but has not yet
Before the 20th century, many governments welcomed refugees from other countries. Refugees did not face any restrictions because the government saw these people as a means of improving their economies or as new members to the workforce and the army. This paper concentrates on the economic performances of refugees. Canada is committed to protecting the people whose facing stateless and prosecuted. Refugees would not be satisfied upon arrival.
Many may argue that Laurier and Sifton’s policy was not open door, nor prosperous for all. Even with the “Open-Door Policy”, many different immigrants had a hard time taking up settlement in Western Canada. The blacks for example, were just one of the many immigrants that was rejected during the Laurier era. Blacks started immigrating to Canada in the 1800’s, Via the underground railway. The Blacks were trying to escape slavery and racism, but little did they know that they did not fully escape racism by moving to Canada.
