First nations

Reserves are tagged with admin_level=6, while larger self-governing regions are tagged as admin_level=5. They should eventually also be tagged with the result of the discussion at boundary=aboriginal_lands. Villages within first nations can be tagged as admin_level=8 if they are recognized in some way by the first nation government.
