  •  The Life of Aboriginals
  • This is Frank Calder, an indigenous father, part of the Inuit tribe and has a wife, son and daughter
  • Life of the aboriginals is tough most of the time.  Indigenous people are composed of many cultures and usually live in the plains.  They take care of there families by fishing, hunting, and trapping.
  • You guys again? What are you doing here. Get off our land!
  • Like Frank's family, they have to deal with many problems from the Canadian government, whether it is to steal land from aboriginal people and threats.
  • We are here for another proposition, if you give us this land for recreational uses, we will move your people to the best land yet!
  • Calder also has to deal with his kids being sent away to residential schools. This where children are forced to learn the Canadian culture and work. Any mistake results in a harsh or abusive punishment
  • School conditions are poor, food is bad, children were organized by sex and age, and they were mistreated while being away from there families. Residential schools closed in 1996
  • The Calder Case
  • The Calder Case is based on a true story about Frank Calder and the Nisga'a tribe. He fought for cultural practices and freedom, he didn't win the case but he did gain respect for his people and got them privilege to land for all aboriginal people.
  • Many aboriginal people dreamed of have equal rights with Canadian citizens and one day, Frank Calder made it happen and fought for indigenous rights
