The 1960s saw the world respond to social issues, military control and bureaucratic elites and was marked with many protests around the world. The world was making noise about issues that affected millions of people and many countries. In Canada the indigenous communities were also speaking up about the injustices in their communities and their country. In 1967 Canada celebrated 100 years as a country and the Aboriginal peoples took this as a time to highlight the injustices they have suffered over the past 100 years. Aboriginal people were expressing their challenges and disappointments in the way the government was not responding to their social values, heritage, family life, language and their land. The 1968 Rebellions were protests against inequality and injustice. Aboriginal people made it clear that they wanted their values honoured. Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau was elected in 1968 and the newly elected government focused on social changes for Aboriginal people.
