Forced isolation and assimilation of aboriginals stole their identity and independence, leaving them at the mercy of the "superior culture." This system has failed, creating turmoil, suspicion, and dysfunction. Outsiders have again injected themselves into La Loche in an attempt to solve the problem, one originally of their making.The European attitude of "we know best," shrouded in best intentions, is not working. And no one is talking about it.
