Land and Language

Significance of the language and the land Canada was built on
Dewina Luechtefeld



This essay explores the significance of the language and the land Canada was built on. I will
begin with describing my family history as well as naming my first language. Furthermore, in
this essay, I will identify the language and the people whose land I live on today. The essay
describes many of the crimes committed against Indigenous people since the beginning of
colonialization to the present day such as the mere existence of residential schools or the
disproportional violence against Indigenous women. Eventually, this essay explores ways how
these problems can be solved through education and the heightened awareness of the general population.
