The Indian Act was introduced to enhance the marginalization of the community and acquisition of authority regarding the significant exploitation of the resources from the ethnic group. The establishment of the Indian Act enshrined coercing the indigenous communities towards abandoning their beliefs and practices for modern civilization.
The initiative was attributed to the significant discrimination of the indigenous community due to their ethnic identity. However, after attaining independence, the government focused on promoting equity and appreciation of traditional cultural diversity. Therefore, the Indian Act was abolished to ensure that Indo-Americans accessed equal rights as other citizens. The concept fostered the advocacy for social justice across national boundaries.
