Abstract

For many Aboriginal peoples, trying to acquire a postsecondary education denotes overcoming a multitude of formidable barriers. Within this paper, I discuss the nature of these obstacles, which I classify as: (a) historical; (b) educational; (c) social, economic, and geographical; (d) cultural and pedagogical; and (e) financial. Also within this article, I offer suggestions of how to surmount each of these grave challenges.
