Activity 3 Readings
Influential Canadian Egerton Ryerson (the educator for whom an Ontario university is named) is credited with creating the Ontario school system, upon which all other provincial school systems are historically based. Ryerson was in many ways an advocate for minority groups. For example, he lobbied for religious freedom for non-conformist religious groups (including Indigenous). He believed that education should be universal (accessible for all, instead of just the privileged few) and used as a mechanism for society’s improvement. He believed that education should be compulsory and should be built upon a moral base for effectiveness. Unfortunately, this belief led eventually to an Indian Education Policy that saw the need to educate Indigenous children separately. This was to counter-balance the perceived moral and skill deficits of Indigenous people relative to Euro-Canadian people. The idea was that once Indigenous people were ‘ready’ to be recognized as ‘civilized’ (i.e., ready for assimilation with Euro-Canadians) then the residential school system would be dismantled, and the children of Canada would all be educated together.
- What did Ryerson believe were the two main goals or purposes of Indigenous Education in Canada?
- How are these two goals or purposes related to each other?

Activity 1: Employment Allows Change and Continuity in Indigenous Cultures
- a. It is sometimes assumed that after Contact and/or white settlement, Indigenous people quickly began to lose their cultures because they adopted white culture.

- On the other hand, in what ways did contact and white settlement force important changes on Indigenous cultures?
- With reference to your readings,briefly list all of the challenges described that made it difficult for the B.C. First Nations to hunt and fish, and also to work.
- Given this list, briefly give your observation as to why dependence on welfare has come to be so common among Indigenous communities.
- How has Indigenous dependence on welfare created a stereotype and reinforced discrimination in our contemporary times?

Activity 4: Case Study—Elsie Knott and Indigenous Women in Politics
- Knott was accused of nepotism. Given what we’ve learned about poverty for Indigenous women, is it understandable that some Indigenous women in power (and men, for that matter) might look to nepotism as a means to financial security and/or survival? Why or why not?
