Corporate Author: Circle Alberta
Subject:Indigenous peoples - general
Publisher:John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights
Place of Publication:Edmonton

Abstract:

The following report represents the thoughts and experiences of 150 adult and youth dialoguesession participants that took place in eight communities throughout Alberta. Each dialogue session focused on three key themes: celebration (community successes), reflection (communitychallenges/gaps), and vision (future goals). The community dialogues allowed the project to get a clear understanding of the critical challenges that many Aboriginal peoples face from the perspective of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples on the ground. In parallel with the adult dialogues, youth dialogues also took place. The intention of these dialogues was to engage youth and highlight their perspective on the issues that they face in theircommunities, particularly around their own individual long-term development and theireducational and employment prospects. The youth dialogues were also an opportunity to bringcreative perspectives to the table and to engage youth in understanding their role in taking actionto address some of these issues in their communities.

2011 Shift Aboriginal Project

Title:Shift: The Project to End Domestic Violence: research in the Calgary aboriginal community.
Author(s):Wells, Lana|split|Goulet, Sharon
Corporate Author: University of Calgary Faculty of Social Work
Mahegun Tails Inc.
Subject:Indigenous peoples - health, welfare|split|Women - sexual assault, violence against women
Publisher:Centre for Criminology and Justice Research
Place of Publication:Calgary
Date of Publication:2011
Abstract:

Statistics show that aboriginal women are at significantly higher risk of spousal violence and spousal homicide than non-aboriginal women (Statistics Canada, 2006). This corresponds to international research which indicates that aboriginal women face significantly higher risk of exposure to violence (VicHealth, 2007).While there are some programs to address domestic violence in Aboriginal communities, there are very few examples of primary prevention initiatives targeted at/with this community, with even fewer having been evaluated (VicHealth, 2007).

Using an Aboriginal community development perspective, this research project explored the following research questions: 1. What exists in the current literature on meanings and definitions, risk and protective factors, and prevention intervention strategies within the area of domestic violence and urban Aboriginal communities? 2. What services currently exist locally (Calgary) for urban Aboriginal peoples experiencing domestic violence? 3. What is the state of readiness within the community of Calgary to address this pressing social issue from a primary prevention perspective? 4. How can domestic violence be defined from an Aboriginal perspective?
