This is a First Nations Masters Project that utilized Participatory Action Research and Indigenous Methodology to decipher if youth in Prince George are interested in their cultural heritage and if so, what parts of culture are they informed about, and what more would they like to learn. This research was broken into two parts, quantitative surveys and qualitative workshops. During the workshops, youth co-researchers and I hatched out what culture means to us and how we are interculturaly influenced. We looked at the larger context of the Eurocentric and capitalistic culture we are a part of and how we are all affected by it. In the end, we followed Aboriginal pedagogical methods and shared our new found knowledge with the greater community, our friends and family. --P. i.
