Race based research and mainstream media coverage presented in this article shows how little is still understood about First Nations by academics and urban Canadians. This type of material seems to be more about how to keep First Nations poor by helping Canadians believe that everything is okay. Any study comparing groups of indigenous people from different countries is just about looking at the disadvantaged in our society. Using a survey tool that is intended for a completely different purpose definitely produces some interesting conclusions for some people.
