The indigenous people of North America who were sweethearts to the European motherfuckers, but got their asses kicked anyway.
The First Nations were brave and willing to do anything to fight for their land but they ended all getting killed because their European allies were pussies and ran away.

A confusing term and increasingly politically correct term that is legally undefined, but generally refers to the indigenous peoples (the "first peoples") of Canada. The use of the term Native American is uncommon in Canada; though technically correct (as Canada is part of the North American continent), Native American generally refers more specifically to indigenous peoples of the United States. Native Canadian is not commonly used, but terms such as natives and autochthones (Canadian French) are.

Technically, First Nation discludes those of Inuit or Metis descent, though all these groups constitute "Aboriginal peoples" in Canada.

The term is rarely used in the United States in reference to the native peoples inhabiting its borders.
What do you think of those first nations getting all of those benefits from the government, eh?

A First Nation Sensation is a person of indigenous decent of North America, who is absolutely outstanding. These people can multitask anything, hold down a job, family and find time to help others. They know how to make income, put others before themselves and be extremely proud of their culture. They know how to be traditional and have the utmost respect for Mother Nature. These people also take good care of their bodies, that is their temple. They eat food that is healthy for their bodies and they exercise regularly. They also remain humble, for that is the way they were brought up, yet they are fiercely proud of their family and children.
"Paula is a First Nation Sensation, she loves to camp with her children and respect Mother Nature as a part of her culture. She works hard for her family and wants the best for her them, I admire her".

I admire First Nations who love to work hard for their families, its not easy these days, they are a "First Nation Sensation".
