Explores a range of Aboriginal conceptual foundations of Aboriginal Self Determination and examines the emerging application of "Mitho Pimachesowin" in Aboriginal development. Historically, the Aboriginal "Way of Life" had spiritual roots and encompassed all of life, and this holistic perspective continues to influence modern developments in varying degrees. This class will introduce students to the Cree concept of Mitho Pimachesowin (ability to make a good living) and will also explore the related elements of autonomy, kinship, work ethic, respect, responsibility and resilience as they apply to contemporary initiatives in Aboriginal Self Determination
