Issue of Children in Aboriginal Community

Aboriginal children exercise full power and liberty in all aspects of their lives, a fact that surprised many of the European colonialists who later construed that Aboriginal communities were over empowering their children and giving them unexceptional status and freedom that they did not deserve as children. European colonialists were amazed by disciplinary measures used by aboriginal parents, for instance, teasing and storytelling as a way of instilling discipline and morals to children. The focus and value of children between Aboriginal and European societies were entirely different because children were increasingly significant in aboriginal societies than in European societies. Children were as a source of pride, status, and respect to Aboriginal people, and had freedom and power to take part in adult meetings and events.

Although aboriginal children were the key source of pride for the community and the most crucial gift from God, the children and the wider aboriginal society have faced a drastic challenge in modern society. Numerous statistical evidence reveals that two out of eight aboriginal children are living in absolute poverty. therefore, this calls for state and provincial administrations to implements some actions to improve the chances of living of the aboriginal children in urban regions and reserves. A recent report reveals that Canadian Aboriginal groups face a deep challenge. They constitute the youngest and rapidly growing part of the Canadian population and the majority have increasingly low literacy levels that the wider Canadian population compared to Canadian nationals, (CBC News, 2006). Therefore, many of the children have suffered enormous challenges in the past and continue to face similar challenges in the contemporary era, in the hands of European colonizers and other aliens.

Regrettably, Canadian antiquity with regard to the Native community consideration is something people cannot appreciate.&nbsp.
