Summary or Abstract : Decolonization is a concept that echoes across Indigenous communities around the world and is the focus of this body of research. The importance and significance of this work is best described as a magnificent slice of life from a First Nation community. The significant qualities of First Nation communities, families and people are acknowledged and recognized in this work along with the current tensions created by subtle and overtly imposed processes of colonization. This research utilizes ethnographical techniques in order to describe the depth of perception of the First Nation experience. Data is uniquely drawn from the heart of a First Nations community as the ramifications of colonization processes are broadly and specifically explored.There are many contributing factors resulting in the current state of crisis that many First Nation communities are challenged with. The theory of communicative action sets the framework for this study and illustrates that this state of crisis is indicative of colonization of the lifeworld imposed on the First Nation community. To address the external political and economic pressures created by colonization, communicative action can be implemented as a method of reversing these external pressures.Education, viewed by many First Nation people as a passport to better living, is the crucial focus of this thesis. Education systems modeled on Eurocentric paradigms have generally proved unproductive in First Nation communities. The future interests within and among First Nation communities requires an emerging sense of balance across social, educational, political and economic spheres. Self-determination and reorganization within First Nations communities lead by their own members' reveals a mixed bag of successes and failures. As this thesis ultimately illustrates, decolonization of these systems is paramount if the processes of external domination are to be derailed.It is with these challenges in mind that this thesis attempts to engender understanding about the processes of colonization and decolonization. Communicative action is poised as a means to assist in the re-establishment of language and retention of culture along with a focus on healthy and unified First Nation communities..
