Linda Archibald, with Jonathan Dewar, Carrie Reid, Vanessa Stevens

"This report describes the results of a study by the Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF) in the use of creative arts in healing programs. The formal research question guiding this study was, What happens when art, music, dance, storytelling, and other creative arts become a part of community-based Aboriginal healing programs?

....Underlying the study is an assumption that the need for healing among Aboriginal people has its roots in the residential school system, and this, in turn, is part of a broader legacy of dislocation and loss that began with the colonization of North America."
