This Indigenous Collaborative Research (ICR) investigates with the community agency, Warrior Against Violence Society, how culturally-based healing practices provide a more comprehensive and thus more effective method to assist Aboriginal communities struggling with family violence. Cultural practices involving storytelling, honouring ceremonies, youth groups, Elder wisdom, natural environment, and transference of culture signify aspects of tradition integral to Aboriginal health.
