Wicihitowin: Aboriginal Social Work in Canada is the first Canadian social work book written by First Nations, Inuit and Métis authors who are educators at schools of social work across Canada. The book begins by presenting foundational theoretical perspectives that develop an understanding of the history of colonization and theories of decolonization and Indigenist social work.
Seeking Mino-Pimatisiwin: An Aboriginal Approach to Healing by Fisher River Cree social worker, Michael Hart, presents his perspective on Aboriginal helping that can lead to "the good life" or mino-pimatisiwin. As a Ph. D candidate in the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Manitoba, Hart states that this book is based on his personal experiences and his understanding of an Aboriginal approach to helping. He acknowledges that there is no single Aboriginal approach to healing but First Nations should add to this discussion and promote further development of Aboriginal helping.
