There are four objectives of this dissertation. The first is addressing the Native perspective and how that influences both the methodology and theoretical context. The second is developing a context that is both relevant to the Lubicon and myself, as well as the social sciences. The third is describing the field research in Little Buffalo, Alberta over a five year period, and how spirituality and culture shapes not only perceptions but human behaviour which is identified as resistance to dominant ideology and oppression. The fourth is providing the Lubicon Cree men and women with an opportunity to tell their story from their own voice. The conclusion brings together the spiritual-theoretical collective voice to address issues of representation and more importantly the very real experience of "genocide."
