This thesis is based on fieldwork done in a native palliative care institution, band run and staffed by native caregivers, located in a expansive native community. The purpose of the present study is to understand how an individual's sense of Self can be affirmed in an institution providing 'culturally sensitive care', defined as interactions and activities that enable the individual to preserve a strong sense of culture, community and family. A strong sense of self should be reflected in the best possible state of physical, psychological and spiritual well-being given the chronic condition of the individual.
