Genocide in Canada

Updated on April 24, 2015

The Systematic Destruction of Canada's Indigenous Children and Families

The dark secret of the Canadian government, Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church is finally revealed. Watch video footage with proof of child abuse, sexual & spiritual abuse, sterilization and murder suffered by the First Nations people at the hand of wicked men and women posing as Christians. Native children, forced to play with other children who were dying of tuberculosis and smallpox only to fall ill and die themselves. 50% off these children died totaling over 50,000. The videos you will see below detail a great wickedness that was and is still present and active in the Churches named, a wickedness felt by Canada's aboriginal people and Kevin Annett who despite persecution by the church took up his cross and followed Jesus speaking the truth about Aboriginal Genocide to all who would listen.

Genocide Definition

The deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group.

ALL components of genocide are present. Specifically here in Canada:

(1) killing members of the group

- the deliberate infecting of blankets with small pox and sending them to reserves;

- the enacting of scalping laws which encouraged settlers to kill and scalp Indians for a monetary reward;

- the deliberate infecting of Indigenous children with infectious diseases in residential schools which led to their deaths;

- the deliberate abuse, torture, starvation, and denial of medical care to Indigenous children forced to live at residential schools which resulted in as many as 40% dying in those schools;

- the killing of our people by police and military through starlight tours, tazering, severe beatings, and by unjustified shootings;

- the killing of our people resulted in severely reduced populations, and some Nations completely wiped out;

- in the US, some groups were exterminated by up to 98%;

(2) causing serious bodily harm or mental harm to the members of the group;

- think of the torture and abuse inflicted on Indigenous children in residential schools like sexual abuse, rape, sodomy, solitary confinement, denial of food and medical care, and severe beatings for speaking one's language, etc;

- imagine the mental harm to Indigenous families and communities when their children were forcibly removed from them and left to die in residential schools;

- even when residential schools were starting to close, social workers in the 1960s onward stole children and placed them out for adoption in non-Indigenous families;

- the torture and abuse of Indigenous peoples in order to force them to sign treaties and agreements;

- the loss of language, culture, traditions, practices, way of life, beliefs, world views, customs;

- the imposed divisions in families, communities and Nations through the Indian Act

(3) deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

- think of the deliberate and chronic underfunding of essential social services on reserve like housing, water, food, sewer and other programs fundamental to the well-being of a people like education and health;

- the theft of all the lands and resources of Indigenous peoples and their subsequent confinement to small reserves where the law prevented them from leaving and providing for their families and so were left to starve on the rations provided by Canada;

- or the relocations of Indigenous communities from resource rich areas to swamp lands where they could not provide for themselves;

- Indian Affairs who divided large nations into small communities, located them physically away from one another,

- the Indian Act led to the physical separation of Indigenous women and children from their communities through the Act's assimilatory registration provisions;

(4) imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;

- the forced sterilizations of Indigenous women and men, most notably in Alberta and British Columbia;

- the Indian Act's discriminatory registration provisions which prevent the descendants of Indigenous women who married non-Indian men to be recognized as members of their community thus keeping their births from being recognized as part of the group;

- the discriminatory INAC policy which prevents the children of unwed mothers from registering their children as Indians and part of their communities (unstated and unknown paternity);

(5) forcibly transferring children of the group to another group

- the long history of residential schools which had an express stated purpose - "to KILL the Indian in the child" and to ensure that there were no more Indians in Canada;

- the 60's scoop which saw the mass removal of Indigenous children from their homes and adopted permanently into non-Indigenous homes;

- the prevention of children from being members in their communities due to the discriminatory Indian Act registration provisions;

- the current high rate of children removed from their families which out numbers residential schools and 60's scoop combined.

Unfortunately, I could provide many more examples, but there is no need to do so when what is listed above more than meets the definition of genocide. So, when the Minister of Indian Affairs says that residential schools were NOT a form of cultural genocide, he is not only undoing what good the public residential schools apology did, but he is denying all of the horrors committed by Canada on our peoples - in essence, he is denying our lived realities.

Canadian Genocide Video Documentation Part 1-10 - Unrepentant by Kevin Arnett

The Old Testament Scriptures quoted at the start of this video does not describe how people are supposed to be treated in these New Testament times. It is regrettably true that it is exactly how the First Nations, Inuit and Metis people were treated by the Canadian Government, Catholic, Anglican and United Church. These religious leaders and organizations have become gods unto themselves, no longer follow the teachings of Jesus and remain as the story tells - Unrepentant. For a deeper look into the context of the Old Testament scripture used, see this link. John Piper - When God commanded large scale capital punishment. You will see that it relates to the same issue - unrepentance.

      I hope and pray for healing to take place. Forgiveness needs to also happen. It is indeed sad.
