The dozen original articles in this collection sensitively covers efforts during the past twenty-five years to develop and deliver social work education that meets the needs of Aboriginal students in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Editorial Review

"Walking in the Good Way is an excellent resource for social work educators around the world who wish to work with Aboriginal communities in offering anti-oppressive, Aboriginal-centred education. The real voices of students, instructors (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal), and administrators speak to the need to step outside of traditional methods and to challenge the power inherent in traditional university education."— “Grant Larson, Dean, School of Social Work and Human Service, Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops, British Columbia
