“The Final Solution” is a term coined by the Nazi party, describing their plan for the genocide and murder of Jews during the second World War. It represented a policy of deliberate and systematic genocide which culminated in the Holocaust. The type of genocidal actions witnessed during World War 2, and in many other parts of the world, is something that also occurred in North America prior to the Second World War. Some Scholars have estimated that prior to the ‘discovery’ of the Americas by Europeans, the pre-contact era population could have been as high as 100 million people. We are taught in high school that the mass disappearance and depopulation of the indigenous was due to disease brought over by the Europeans, but recent history involving the Canadian residential school system may be a catalyst for many to question this narrative. There were most certainly other factors.
