This case study of Mi'kmawey School describes a bilingual, bicultural education program in Nova Scotia and the crisis which gave rise to it. The school's philosophy emphasizes self-awareness and independent learning. When an all-Mi'kmaw certified staff took over in 1984, the change made a significant difference in the school. This paper describes the program they developed, parental involvement in the school, and teachers’ roles. The account is impressive, leaving no wonder that the school has become a role model for other Mi'kmaq communities.
