Thus the research focuses not only on helping young peoples as individuals, but also on helping Native American communities and non-native communities to deal better with the consequences of colonization and assimilation practices of Native American Peoples (First Nations, Inuit, and MÃ©tis) in the history of Canada. My research aims to do the latter by showing how alternative social practices are needed in Native American communities, framed (in Bourdieu's terms) within alternative social fields and alternative formssocial capital that support the formation, development, and maintenance of alternative dispositions in at-risk Indigenous young people “ that is, an alternative Habitus for the young people involved. This alternative Habitus will be one that sustains the resiliency of young Native American Peoples.
