From the Paper:"Aboriginal peoples who live in the city in Canada live under the worst conditions. Compared with other Canadians, they have very low social and economic status. They also have very little education. However, all Aboriginal peoples are not the same. Depending on the city, they can be very different from Aboriginal groups in other cities. This paper is concerned with Aboriginal people in Winnipeg. For one thing, these people have a higher level of education, but the level of poverty also is still high. Even when Aboriginal people in the city should be in a good position, they are not. One very important explanation for the condition of Aboriginal people in Winnipeg is stereotypes. The sociological perspective that best explains the problems of Aboriginal people in Winnipeg and the rest of Canada is conflict theory."
