These are some really good points Lindsay, I have always been wondering why there is a serious lack of indigenous post-secondary students. Do you think it could also be a cultural difference? By this I mean do you think that someone who is indigneous may not see the value in University/post secondary education because that is not their preferred structure when educating their youth and those around them? I feel like University seems so colonized in the way it works, I can understand if that is incredibly uninviting for indigenous individuals. Is there a way we could adjust the structure and make-up of a post secondary education to attract more indigenous individuals?
