Actually, First Nations as currently used in Canada does not include
either the Inuit or the Metis. Inuit spread through the far North, west
to east from northeast Asia, seems to have happened much later than the
First Nations waves of settlement, if I recall the anthropology theories
correctly. And the Metis nation have origins in historical times ...
indeed some of them are my remote cousins, through my furtrading French
settler forebears. So the correct inclusive term is currently Indigenous
with a capital I.
