1. At the beginning of this semester, we discussed how some Indigenous societies in Canada were matriarchal. However, in just a few hundred years since contact, a Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Commission was needed. Why was this commission needed? And, why did our history make it a necessity?
2. This semester, we have seen many attempts by the Canadian government to do what officials think is best to help Indigenous people. Why do these often fail? And, what would you recommend instead?
