"The government of Canada established the Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF) in March 1998 to address the Legacy of Physical and Sexual Abuse suffered by Aboriginal people in residential schools. Since the Foundation supports research that promotes healing, a priority to study the resilience of individuals, families and communities within the context of the residential school legacy has been acknowledged. In this report, a critical analysis of the resilience literature is undertaken and is considered against the cultures, lived experiences and larger social contexts of Aboriginal Survivors of residential school. The findings, summarized below, serve as the basis for recommended actions in the areas of planning and research, interventions and evaluation". -- Executive Summary.
