About this book

Aboriginal Knowledge for Economic Development analyzes the benefits, practices and challenges of Mi'kmaw and Maliseet Language Immersion programs, illustrating how these programs provide a solid foundation of worldview, ethics, values and identities that are essential for improved academic success, and examines the Honouring Traditional Knowledge Project, a two-year project to seek Elders' views on how to include them and traditional knowledge in all aspects of community economic research and development.
