The Silent North: A Case Study on Deafness in a Dene Community.
Castleden, Heather
Canadian Journal of Native Education, v26 n2 p152-68 2002
In an isolated, northern Canadian, Indigenous community, interviews were conducted with family and community members connected to a young deaf boy, who finally was sent away to a residential school. Findings highlight the lack of culturally relevant services in northern communities, prevalence of otitis media and hearing loss in Native children, and disruption to family life and cultural transmission caused by the child's departure.
