Two apocalyptic events transformed Indigenous life in the prairie forever - the massacre of the buffalo and the introduction of disease. These led to a spiritual and cultural disaster and mass starvation for First Nation tribes, essentially wiping out a once vibrant culture. Devastated, First Nations people turned to the Dominion of Canada for help. Canada's responsibility went from one of protection to one of civilizing.
