A Thesis as a Ceremony of Voice
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this thesis is to explore the author's process of finding authentic self as a First Nation's person in graduate school. The study is framed using a traditional Blackfoot method, a post-colonial auto ethnographic method, and a narrative inquiry. The exploration includes four sections which are: 1) introduction and position of self, 2) methodology, 3) narratives, and 4) analysis and conclusion. Making meaning from the identification of an authentic self is an essential process not only for me as a practitioner but hopefully for other practitioners in the field to be able to provide appropriate mental health services to their respective communities.
