ABSTRACT
This article deals with the question of whether the warrior societies of the Canadian indigenous people can survive in the shadow of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States in 2001 or not. Members of the West Coast Warriors were the recent targets of investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's Integrated National Security Enforcement Teams (INSET). INSET is responsible for investigations under Canada's Anti-terrorist Act. The West Coast Warrior Society believes that government and law enforcement agencies are using public fear to allow anti-terrorism resources in the country to be used to investigate and curtail Aboriginal activism in Canada, and thwart the legitimate efforts of Indian warrior societies to protect Aboriginal interests across the country.
