Impacts: Summary

The full impact of the Royal Commission on First Nations people remains unknown, as the restrictions to land use continue to impact First Nations culture, identity, health and welfare almost one century later. Time, resources, and effort spent fighting human rights injustices committed by the colonial government, has taken away from the re-building of Aboriginal communities. Despite ongoing hardships, First Nations cultures survive and the people continue to fight against the injustices of the colonial legacy.
