Ruth Price, Brian Burtch

Both programs were offered in a face-to-face format at the Merritt campus, and both were a collaborative effort. Implications for establishing and sustaining Aboriginal-focused post-secondary education are identified and discussed in this article, as are the barriers to post-secondary education faced by Aboriginal students and the authors’ challenges as non- Aboriginal people engaged in programming across cultures.
