  • Drawing on an earlier narrative inquiry with youth who left school prior to graduating and an experience with creating a responsive summer school program for Aboriginal youth, the present study explored research puzzles into the educational experiences of Aboriginal youth and their families both in and outside of schools. Drawing on a conception of narrative inquiry as both methodology and phenomenon (Clandinin & Connelly, 2000) and on concepts of school curriculum making and familial curriculum making (Huber et al. 2011) I designed a study in which I engaged with three aboriginal youth in their early teens and their families over 2 years.
