dc.description.abstract This research project explores the interconnectivity of identity (self), relations (family), and place (community) literacy. Through narrative writing, I sought to discover what those connections were and how they are relevant to my life as an educator, artist, mother, and lifelong learner. My research in literacy involves a hybrid approach of academic studies, hermeneutics, and traditional Blackfoot knowledge. As an Indigenous writer and researcher studying literacy pedagogy, the wisdom of my ancestors informed my work through a sophisticated balance of new and old ways of education, such as storytelling, oracy, family, tradition, language, and spirituality. This project was a result of a journey through the phenomena of memory, imagination, story writing, and art/ful living. Literacy became a way of knowing that required the need for action, support, and responsibility for literacy advocacy and professional growth. en_US
