Description:

This paper discusses the relationship between the Canadian North West Mounted Police (NWMP) and the native people of Canada. It briefly describes the history of the white Canadian's contact with the native people and how the NWMP became involved with them. The paper compares their attitudes towards the Inuit and the Indians and the conflicting opinions of how to deal with the Inuit. Finally, the paper looks at who is to blame for the degradation of the culture of the native peoples of the frontier.

From the Paper:

"The North West Mounted Police were dispatch to the frontier as the law enforcement representative of the Canadian government. They protected the native population from further exploitation from the white settlers, and although contemptuous at times, they were not responsible for the demise of the native culture. Similar the introduction of modern culture to the Inuit by the Mounted Police was not the root cause of the demise of their culture. The encounter of modern society was inevitable, and the generous attitude of the Mounted Police avoided the exploitation that was all too often a part of the integration of native cultures into modern society."
