Liberating community education and social change : the Regina Native women's group (1971-1986)
This thesis examines and interprets a social movement organization, the Regina Native Women's Group, as an organization that uses liberating community education as a method of improving the social, economic, cultural and political conditions of Native women and their families in the city of Regina. The study focuses on the issues of the housing and community-living crises that developed in Regina during the 1970's to portray the Group's utilization of liberating community education. The study examines factors such as racial and gender oppression, co-option by the state and dilemmas within the Regina Native Women's Group that often hindered it from obtaining social change. As well, the support that the organization received from grassroots organizations and society's institutions that enabled change to occur is also examined.
