Samson's book, ‘A Way of Life that Does not Exist: Canada and the Extinguishment of the Innu', tells of the shocking effects of assimilation

Samson's book, ‘A Way of Life that Does not Exist: Canada and the Extinguishment of the Innu', tells of the shocking effects of assimilation. The Innu lived as nomadic hunters until the 1950s and 1960s, when the Canadian government forced them to abandon their land and live in settled villages. Since they lost their land, the Innu have faced appalling health and social problems. One community has the world's highest suicide rate, while solvent abuse among children and teenagers, alcoholism, obesity and diabetes are rife.

In the 1950s and the 1960s the Innu people were prompted by the Canadian authorities to abandon nomadic hunting, the way of life that had made them independent and self-reliant occupants of a vast area of the Sub-Arctic.
