Is "first people" the PC phrase du jour?

Keswick, the term's been around for awhile north of the US border. "First Nations" or "First People" doesn't get used much in the US.

In other recent news, Labrador Inuit gained a measure of independence late last week, following the Inuit's gain of the Nunavut territory in 1999.

Nice post, peacay, thanks.

Unsurprisingly, native first peoples' culture and children were systematically suppressed

"First Nations" refers to the people native to what is now Canadian territory but not including the M├ętis or Inuit. Collectively they are known as Aboriginal peoples or nations. This has been common usage since the 70's, keswick.

And, nice resource peacay. Thanks
