Topic Two:The APTN
The APTN is the Aboriginal People’s Television Network in Canada that was established with government support in 1992. Currently it is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba and produces programing that focuses on Indigenous Peoples in Canada and the United States. It is the first network that is made by and for Aboriginal Peoples. The real kick off for the APTN happened in 1980 when the Therrien Committee Report showed that the Aboriginal people, particularly in the north, were developing a strong interest in developing their own media services that more tailored to their views as an indigenous people, and that it was the responsibility of the government to provide support to create broadcasting that enforced their languages and …show more content…
Just by analysing the APTN’s symbol we can garner quite a bit of information about the network. First off, the rising sun which is found at the top of the symbol is of great importance to many different tribes across Canada. According to First Nations traditions it represents the abundance of life and its warmth radiates healing and peace. This is a particularly resonating symbol for the network because of what is stated in their programing mission: “The APTN Programming department develops, commissions and acquires distinctive Aboriginal content which reflects our pride and heritage. APTN is committed to enabling Aboriginal Peoples to share their stories and convey them to a domestic and international audience.” By helping Aboriginal Peoples share their stories with the public they are working to build a more peaceful country where the divide between non-Aboriginals and Aboriginal peoples is bridged. With that they are bringing healing to those who have felt the unfortunate ramifications of being born as an Aboriginal person. In particular trying to bring healing to those affected by residential schools, the alcoholism epidemic, the missing and murdered list of Aboriginal Women, and the racial inequalities they face on a daily basis. Moving down we come to a human who's head is yellow and body is blue. The colouring is most likely

Pamela George’s murder occurred in 1995, and one would like to wish that our society were more advanced than this. It is disheartening to see that these kinds of race issues are still popping up today, when we like to boast what a compassionate, melting pot of a society Canada is. This article has influenced my thinking in that it has made me more aware of the situations regarding Aboriginals in our society that are still occurring today. It has also opened my eyes to the harsh living situations and the harsh treatment of Aboriginal people to this day.
8th Fire: Indigenous in the City, is part of a documentary series that describes the challenges that aboriginal people face when moving to the large cities from reservations. The documentary begins by describing the stereotypes that English Canadians as well as other visible minority groups perceive aboriginal people to be. They show how damaging the stereotypes are to the First Nations, especially in the area of education. The documentary concludes by offering a few some solutions of how to change and improve the relationship between the aboriginal community and the rest of Canada. The two main aspects of the film that I will focus my analysis on is the education system from past to present and the negative impacts it has had on the
A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) is a very tough job and may take a long time to become one, but it is well worth it in the long run. What is a CRNA? A CRNA provides anesthesia and related care before, during, and after surgical, therapeutic, diagnostic, and obstetrical procedures. They also provide pain management and some emergency services.

“Most nations consider the notion of land to be an important one. But to Canada 's aboriginal people, it is also a strong cultural symbol. Native identity is drawn from the land: It has been a form of subsistence, and an integral part of creation myths.
It is unbelievable that this year is my last year in Charlestown High School. As I look back at the past three years, there were several poignant moments when I was struggling with my classes and would have given up trying to achieve my goals. But as a diligent student, I chose to endure those moments. And that is how I become an outstanding student today. National Honor Society honors students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Being nominated to become a member of the National Honor Society is a highly prestigious honor, and I am very grateful to be a candidate.

The issue that this documentary presented was that the Aboriginal residential school process was a way to eliminate the entirety of the Aboriginal population or at least assimilate them. The process was very deliberate and often times the views of Aboriginals were not acknowledged in this whole institution. Furthermore, the language used to describe Aboriginals showed the truth of there being a deliberate attempt to assimilate and eliminate this group. Shockingly, Canada’s PM, Sir John A. MacDonald called the group Canada’s “Indian problem”. These polies instill a culture of racism as policies tend to shape attitudes. Dhiru Patel’s Public Policies and Racism article talks about Canada attempting to give retribution for this which leads to a false perception that Canada is now free of Racism. In fact, the article mentions that amongst youth 83% of Canadians think Canada treats minority groups fairly. In the movie, the interviews of all of the groups shows that
Discrimination of Aboriginal culture and way of life has also been a pressing issue during the years between 1945 and 2010. Canada, as nation that promotes equality, has done a terrible job demonstrating it. False stereotypes and perceptions of Native American people are very common in society today and back then. It is most common in the media because it is seen by almost everyone and has a considerable influence on peoples perspective on an idea, whether their aboriginal or not. Media reaches everywhere, from movies to the new and from advertisement to literature, it gets coverage. In the media aboriginals only ever get minor roles with a lack of identity in their characters, but when they are recognized, they are seen as
Some of the outcomes of ASPD can be harmful to the sufferer as well as those surrounding him/her. An example of a societal cost would be the suffering endured by the victim of a crime committed by a person with ASPD. Crimes like those committed by a religious cult leader, for example, can have devastating effects on the religious followers (some abuse drugs, other victims commit suicide). Other outcomes include the self-infliction of pain. Sufferers of ASPD are also at higher risk of abusing alcohol and drugs.
Last December, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his intentions to not only launch a national public inquiry about the several missing and murdered aboriginal women, but also to take the necessary steps towards the renewal of the relationship between the Canadian Federal Government and the Fist Nations (Mas, 2015). Notably, Trudeau claimed the 2016 budget would include an increase in the funding towards aboriginal education (Mas, 2015). Past governments had imposed a strict limit of 2% on said funds (Mas, 2015), a restriction that was undoubtedly harmful to the already dwindling aboriginal life conditions.
