This practicum report discusses findings of an autoethnographic case study of a grassroots community building project conducted by Native Child and Family Services of Toronto (NCFST), Toronto's Aboriginal child welfare agency. The project focused upon NCFST's engagement of a culturally diverse urban Aboriginal group of 350 residents living at a subsidized housing complex in Scarborough, Ontario. Using reflexive autoethnographic journaling and newsletters as recording instruments the research student provides a descriptive account of an emergent community social work ontology based on the confluence of Pan-Indian approaches and western social work community theory. --P. ii.
