1) In what ways is the Aboriginal world view reflected in their governments?

One way the Aboriginal world views are reflected by their government through stories. The stories that were told were "brought to life" or brought into play, by their government. There's also detailed differences in their world view; meaning everyone has different views of things and different ways of doing things. It's also how they've been told that the world was created; how their ansestors came into the world and how the world was made. The Mi'kmaq believe that the eath was created by seven stages of creation; Gisoolg, Nisgam or Grandfather, Mother Earth, a lightning bolt striking the earth (represented by Glooscap)
