Reviews

"Walking in the Good Way is an excellent resource for social work educators around the world who wish to work with Aboriginal communities in offering anti-oppressive, Aboriginal-centred education. The real voices of students, instructors (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal), and administrators speak to the need to step outside of traditional methods and to challenge the power inherent in traditional university education."
—  Grant Larson, Dean, School of Social Work and Human Service, Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops, British Columbia
