Mainstream Aboriginal commentary and books rarely deviate from accepted thinking:

Predictably, such thinking claims Aboriginal societies existed as nation-states and were just as advanced as European societies, that “cultural loss” and colonization are to blame for current Aboriginal problems, and that self-government will solve everything

The Impact of Socio-economic Status on Métis health: A Brief Introduction for Community

Carrie Bourassa, Ph.D.
October 20, 2008

Abstract

The lack of research on the relationship between socio-economic status and health has hampered efforts to lobby, and seek funding from, municipal, provincial, and federal governments for programs that address socio-economic and health disparities. This paper is a synopsis of research which explores these issues by analyzing the Aboriginal Peoples Survey, the 2001 Census, and the 2001 Canadian Community Health Survey. Results indicate that Métis suffer a lower socio-economic status (lower incomes, wages, employment, and levels of education attainment). This is in spite of similar levels of involvement of Métis and non-Aboriginal Canadians in the workforce. Even among individuals with similar education, Métis earn lower incomes compared to non-Aboriginal Canadians. Clearly, class and race issues combine to affect the socio-economic status of Métis. The lower socio-economic status among Métis appears to affect their health. Specifically, Métis with low income and education report lower self-rated health compared to non-aboriginal Canadians with low income and education. While these issues need to be further examined and better quality data are required, preliminary results emphasize the need for programs to address socio-economic disparities, and race and class issues, in order to attain optimal health and well-being for the Métis in Canada.
