Offering concrete direction for some and validation for others, this groundbreaking book encourages engagement in much-needed discourse on Indigenous social work education. Centred on the strengths, weaknesses, and healing powers of Indigenous social work education programs, the twelve original articles in this collection cover the efforts made over the past twenty-five years to develop and deliver social work education that meets the needs of Indigenous students in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Informative and engaging, Walking in the Good Way / Ioterihwakwaríhshion Tsi Íhse is a vital resource for the social work classroom.

"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."
