The throne in England sent officials to govern its colonies and to legitimize its basis for governing with treaties signed with indigenous peoples. In the case of much of BC that didn't happen.

England simply didn't have the legal right as an institution to create a clone of itself on unceded lands. Canada is not responsible for the fact it's right to exist is questionable.

Is it fair to wonder if Canada's Confederation violates indigenous peoples' Constitutional rights?

In 1871 there weren't 10,000 non aboriginals in BC.
The residential school system came into existence after 1880, Canada is responsible for them, period.
Canada didn't have a constitution until 1982.
