This article from the International Indigenous Policy Journal presents findings from research on social-emotional competencies of young aboriginal learners.  Using a focus group approach, the researchers engaged in dialogue with young learners, parents, service providers and young adults.  They conclude that aboriginal learners require additional skills to navigate the cultural context of educational institutions and the article goes on to suggest some practical applications of their research results.
