What does it mean to be a leader from an Indigenous youth’s perspective? This narrative study sought to explore the experiences of Indigenous youth as living leaders and how their stories can shape, or interrupt, the dominant deficit-based narratives that limit the complexity and particularity of youths’ lives.
Brian Lewis and his research team from Regina Public School Division and Growing Young Movers (GYM) will present their research at the McDowell Foundation Salon Series, A Narrative Inquiry into the Experiences of Indigenous High School Students Enrolled within a Youth Leadership Pathway, on November 14 at 7 p.m.
