MetadataShow full item record
This thesis honours the expectations of the Ktunaxa in employing their knowledge, culture, and experience in the continued investment and strengthening of the Ktunaxa people. This thesis informs Ktunaxa capacity development through the stories and insights of six highly regarded Ktunaxa Elders. Utilizing Indigenous methodology, whereby the Elders were honoured as leaders within the process, two Kitchen Table Dialogue Circles (KTDCs) were held along with an individual interview. This thesis was grounded in Indigenous ethics in addition to adhering to the Royal Roads University Ethics Policy while honouring the ethical expectations of the Ktunaxa people. The findings and recommendations are related to acknowledgement of trauma and its cumulative impact; importance of cultural connection in identity, wellness, and success; and strategic vision for Ktunaxa knowledge transfer. This inquiry emphasizes the commitment and action necessary to champion change for the collective benefit of the Ktunaxa people. Q̓api qapsin kin ‘itkin hin ‘isti Ktunaxa, which means everything you do, you do for Ktunaxa.
