Introduction Before taking Indigenous Environment Studies IES I have already had somewhat of a bond toward nature I did not know what it was but I had respect toward the environment I do not believe in any religion but I do believe that we need the environment and not the environment needs us I also believe that we need to be more efficient with the earth especially when there is a sustainable source of energy such as wind water tidal solar and geothermal Many of my beliefs are the results of spending many hours in the environment from Scouts to hobbies it is the only thing I have a real connection to I have learned a lot from both IES courses at Fleming College and I hope to learn more about indigenous culture in the future Before IES One thing I knew before coming into this course was the way indigenous people were being treated I did have some knowledge of residential schools from high school history but I did not know of the extremes to which has happened Some things that I did not know were the purpose of residential school to kill the Indian within the child and force removal of many communities It is shocking how humans are able to cause so much suffering to one another One thing that I still do not understand from lectures 10 13 in IES History and Culture is how is it right to force someone to change their identity It is very ironic that during the 18th and 19th centuries liberalism was very popular which focused on a society that promotes individual autonomy and self-interest During this time they were forcing indigenous children to become someone else and to not follow their own self-interest Is that right I believed that the self-interest of those indigenous children were not to be taken away and to be put into a school that had a single purpose
