Supporting Indigenous Fatherhood: The Journey from PreNatal to the 7th Generation
This research project focuses on Indigenous fatherhood. It includes a literature review on scholarly research completed surrounding Indigenous fatherhood, and also some lived experience knowledge shared by Indigenous fathers. The purpose of the literature review is to identify what information is currently available to identify gaps that exist within the literature and what questions remain. This information is used to create a framework for providing programming for Indigenous fathers at various stages of fatherhood including prenatal, fathers as part of a family unit, and single fathers. The research project includes considerations that need to be made so that programming is inclusive of all types of Indigenous fathers including LGBTQ+, fathers with disabilities, working fathers, and fathers with varying levels of parenting time. This research project proposes to provide a foundation for the integration of Indigenous fathers into regular family programming.
