Acceptance of the Words "Aboriginal" and "Indigenous"

STORY BY: Ian Kennedy
YEAR: 2016

Ian had seen BOOM a few years ago in Calgary, and had spoken to Rick Miller about the use of the words "aboriginal" and "indigenous". Today, Ian finds that in some communities, both of these words have a place, and in other places, neither of the words are used. He was interested in how BOOM X seems to favour the word "indigenous", and how that word will come to be seen over time... and in the third part of our BOOM trilogy, BOOM Z! Thanks for sharing, Ian.
