Borders

I disagree that the main border in Thomas King's story "Borders" is the dividing line between the United States and Canada. I think it is more a border of nationhood especially for first nations who truly don't have a country to call their own like stated in the story,"...how it felt to be an Indian without a country." With this sense of not having a true country of their own and only living on a "reserve" creates the pride of being called a "blackfoot citizen" like the mother calls herself every time she is asked her citizenship as a reminder of what citizen she truly is and where her roots are from.

Discussion Question: Would it be a good thing if Canada and the U.S tore down the border and just created one giant country?
