The template is too long, and is being innapropriately placed on articles where it pushes the entire content of the article a few miles down. This applies to all non-Gecko-based browsers, such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The article Great Peace of Montreal is one such example.
Also, why is it being inlined within other existing templates? This is terrible practice. See Inuit for an example.
Second of all, the template needs to be more generalised. To give you an idea, when it comes to only Canadian languages, there are over 55 of them. Factor in dialects, and you'll end up with a few hundred of them. - Also, if this template is about Aboriginal peoples of Canada, why are the Goidelic languages included (the only Canadian Goidelic language is Canadian Gaelic)? It's a European language, not an Aboriginal language of Canada.
For an example of an overtly long template that's collapsable, see Template:Brahmic, or Template:Alphabet. A more appropriate template style however would be to have it horizontally oriented, rather than vertically extending. For example, Template:Writing systems. - Io Katai (talk) 19:21, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

FYI, I've just created Category:Aboriginal culture in Canada to group First Nations, Inuit and Métis culture categories, and any Aboriginal culture articles we may have that span all three. Not sure if this can or should be worked into the template, but I thought I'd mention it. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 01:43, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
