  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • SSHRC IDG awarded 2012: The proposed research will identify ways in which Aboriginal youth can overcome barriers to participation in sport. Findings will serve as the foundation for the development of policies designed to enhance participation in sport by Aboriginal youth. The findings also have the potential to influence Canadian sport policy at a national level. Finally, by actively engaging youth and stakeholders in the research process, the benefits and outcomes of participation in sport among Aboriginal youth will be identified. The proposed research aligns with the Aboriginal Research Priority Are a in that the participatory action research (PAR) methodology employed will ensure that Aboriginal knowledges and traditions are respected and valued. Specifically, this proposed participatory action research project, which will take place at Amiskwaciy Academy and St. Joseph High School, are Edmonton area schools that use Aboriginal cultural enrichment to help promote learning and retention By engaging in collaborative research with students and staff at these schools, Aboriginal traditions and experiences will be at the foundation of all research processes.
