|Abstract||This research study entitled Building Healthy Mi'kmaq Communities in Prince Edward Island is important because at the outset of the study, little or no research had been undertaken with the Mi'kmaq communities of PEL The purpose of the study was to focus primarily on the determinants of health. This article focuses on education and the Aboriginal community. Unique features of this study are the inclusion of children as informants, the use of a multidisciplinary team, and the active involvement of the Mi'kmaq community in all stages of the project. Research findings have emerged in the form of descriptions of children's and youths' perceptions of health and descriptions of their own health behaviors. It is important to keep in mind that all self-reported responses to questions are simply that-self-reports. Results indicated that children are able to articulate needs and challenges that they face in education and can recommend areas on which educators could focus. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]|
