Lets do a quick review of the way they have been treated by us for the last 150 years and compare it to today's NSA guidelines and see is anybody is 'questioned' about said activities. You know when Priests invoke the 5th some bad things are going on.
Their case should actually be precedent setting and be held in the Hauge rather than the after-hour bars of Ottawa. As a 'conquered people' they are supposed to be shown the lifestyle that would have been theirs if they had sold their land at fair market value (yeah right). If nothing else it would expose how the 'treaties' are always slanted to favor the 'winner' no matter how unjust the invasion in the first place.
The way to get the 'first nations' to 'join the community' is not to take them in the back and beat them senseless it is to make world travelers out of a few every year and their 'stories' back home educate the one on the Rez what the 'outside world' is like and how do they begin to fit in. (profession)
Or does our ego prevent us from making changes as 'the old ways' were stupid back in the beginning and time hasn't changed that aspect one bit?

Have them do it in the winter and then count the toes and fingers of theirs that frost got over the winter.
