Excerpt

The transition from the mercantilist fur trade to industrial capitalism […] led to the marginalization of many indigenous peoples, in part, because their cultures were not sufficiently developed to facilitate their success as independent farmers or craft producers.  The profit orientation of the emerging Canadian state, along with racist attitudes, led it to import European farmers and craftsmen rather than devoting the resources needed to prepare the native population for more disciplined and coordinated economic activity.  Consequently, it was indigenous lands, not their labour, which became significant […]. Indigenous tribal groupings became marginalized because they were not integrated into productive activities.
