Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to promote a transformation in how government and non-Aboriginal policy makers and funders support Aboriginal youth. The transformation would lead to strengthened Aboriginal communities and families and an enhanced array of culturally appropriate services for Aboriginal youth. The proposed process of change would also include a recognition of the desire of many Aboriginal individuals, communities and organizations to restore balance to their lives and to move in the direction of self-determination and self-governance.
