“In the recent decades, Canadian governments have officially recognized the diverse cultural heritage of Canadians through a policy of multiculturalism that provides support for different groups to retain their cultures.” (‘Think, Engage, Respond: Communicating for Citizenship’ p117) However the incident of 1990 saw the Mohawk clash against the Canadian government, police and the urban non- Mohawk population where the cultural diversity of the Mohawks was being intruded upon by the Canadian government.
