Does everyone comprehend enough of their own culture identity? Every culture has their own identity. We all have the same human race. However, for me, even though USA is one of the biggest countries in the world, it’s hard to believe USA is a multicultural country, which has many people who came from overseas to the US to represent their own culture in there. There are Native American culture, Mexican culture, Chinese culture, Korean culture etc. and there is no way to count all the cultures which exist in the US because there are just a lot of them.
Aboriginal-Canadians have an excessive history of mistreatment and discrimination in Canada. Europeans considered Canada’s First Nations as savages, eventually residential schools were created which in extreme cases were comparable to Prisoner of War camps. According to Evelyn Kallen, “Substandard housing breeding disease and death, closed schools due to lack of teachers, heat, and/or running water are only two examples of continuing, dehumanizing life conditions on many reserves” (198). Although, extensive improvements have been made to reservations and Aboriginal rights, more improvement remains necessary. Allan Blakeney stated, “An important starting point of course, is that Aboriginal people in Canada do not, as a group, occupy high
In America, the number of federally identified tribes is 562 with every tribe having its own culture, belief system and practices.

A culture is known to be a group of people, usually a group of First Nations people who share the same knowledge, beliefs, values, languages, experiences, etc. amongst each other as a community. Those cultural knowledge and activities continue to be passed down to younger generations as time goes on. First Nations cultures are very important to many First Nations people because it is like the backbone to not only their future but their future generations as well. Just like the Inuit people who cherish their own people and culture. (NEED REFERENCE)
The Canadian Arctic are known as the Inuit, which they are commonly known as Eskimos. The Inuit is a subculture of a Native American culture and they are losing their homelands due to weather changes.

All of the groups that I studied are from all over Canada. All of the tribes are from mostly Northern Canada.I have been studying how the Inuit, Haida, and the Sioux are alike and how they are different.
Culturally competent cares in the medical field can make a huge difference in the satisfaction and the healing of patients who are guests in the facilities that we will be at. In central Minnesota we have the privilege of having many different cultures in a small area.

I have encountered Native Americans in my life as a student at Washington State University that consists of people of all different races, experiences, and identities, including Native Americans. Many of these people can recognize the prejudice, through blatant and covert forms, although others come from privileged backgrounds that may not be as aware of the white supremacist culture that ultimately dictates and polices their actions and opportunities. Unless in their traditional Native garb, these individual are undistinguishable as they often wear the same clothes, perform similar typical activities, and are immersed amongst other non-Natives. I have also encountered many Natives in my hometown in the Yakima Valley, as it borders a reservation
The Colonial Americans came to the New World in search of gold, silver, land, better opportunities, and most importantly they desired religious freedom. Colonial Americans weren’t the only people practicing religion. Even before the exploration of America, the Native Americans who were already residents of the land had begun in their own religious practices, traditions, and creating their own cultures. In all religious beliefs there is a divine creator or creators and we know this through studying the writings of different social groups. The creators in each religion may have different characteristics, roles, and relationships with humankind, but they all play an essential role in shaping the culture and beliefs of a person or a whole society.
What is an ‘indigenous’ religion or belief system? When we hear the term ‘indigenous religion’, what comes to our minds? How do we react internally when those words are mentioned? How do adherents of indigenous religions feel about those outside of their social and cultural circles, who know very little of their beliefs and who understand them even less. And how did the term ‘indigenous’ become associated with various belief systems that, in many cases, preceded most modern religions being practiced today?
The Indian does not exist. It is an imaginary figure, according to Daniel Francis (The Imaginary Indian), invented by Europeans that originated in Columbus's mistake, as he believed he had landed in the East Indies, and developed into fantasy. "Through the prism of white hopes, fears and prejudices, indigenous Americans would be seen to have lost contact with reality and to have become 'Indians'; that is anything non-Natives wanted them to be," (5). Thus they were attributed a wide range of conflicting characteristics, simultaneously seen as noble savages, full of stoicism, the last representatives of a dying race and blood-thirsty warriors, void of emotion and dull-witted, reflecting European
