Most Aboriginals are Disenfranchised by AFN

There usually is money for housing, but it’s stolen from AFN ‘members.’  What’s interesting here is that she filed a land claim with the AFN.  She had to use territoriality to do this.  Traplines are common claims by AFN; like many AFN practices it mirrors colonization.  Aboriginals had no real traplines until ‘european’ traps and trading route demand came to them.  It is considered a good common reference for the new colonies and their claims.
