The Unfinished Stories of Two First Nations Mothers
Moayeri, Maryam; Smith, Jane
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v53 n5 p408-417 Feb 2010
This study is shaped by an underlying theoretical assumption that literacy is a cultural practice, shaped by and shaping social factors such as culture, gender, politics, and economics. As a result, this article focuses on the literacy practices of two mothers who participated in the study. Because of their Aboriginal ancestry and the historical context of their lives, these two participants fell into a community separate from the larger community being studied. This article underlines how the past experiences and literacy practices of these two mothers has influenced their present literacy practices.
