dc.description.abstract This paper examines problem gambling and its resolution in an exploratory phenomenological study among Blackfoot individuals. Significant factors in the development and resolution of problem gambling are identified and a hypothetical model suggested. In this model, traditional knowledge provides a coherent and interpretive framework for individuals seeking an integrated identity as a Blackfoot person. This study addresses a significant gap in our understanding of gambling among Indigenous peoples and identifies directions for further research. en
