"This resource guide is the result of collaboration between Child Protection Services, Department of Community Services and Seniors and Prince Edward Island’s First Nations. The information is compiled from research and interviews and has been reviewed and approved as representing the general beliefs of the Aboriginal people who live on Prince Edward Island. This resource guide does not include all aspects of vibrant and interconnected Aboriginal cultures. It is important to keep in mind that culture is individualistic and not everyone lives their lives following all of the traditions that are presented. There is as much variation in beliefs and values regarding culture and traditions as there is variation in people. Families may adopt specific aspects of the culture to fit their belief system and practices. The guide is intended to be a beginning point for engagement and continued learning."
