Abstract:

For over 100 years, First Nations have been subjected to decisions being made on our behalf as to what is in our best interests. This paternalistic line of thinking has resulted in over a century of detrimental policy and legislation. Study after study has been undertaken with few of the recommendations being implemented. Time and time again others have offered solutions to "fix" First Nations education. First Nations are no longer willing to be spectators in our own future and that of our future generations. From our own cultures, history, languages and traditions, the way forward is clear; we must be the decision makers. Having others, who do not intrinsically know who we are as a people, making fundamental policy and legislative decisions, will never have the success that we as First Nations peoples will have.
