LaBelle, Stephanie C.
The major objective of this thesis is to assess the role and contributions of Aboriginal women to mining negotiations and project development. Utilizing qualitative feminist research methodology, this research incorporated the perspectives of several participants all involved in the mining industry in different capacities. Through bridging the realities, observations, experiences, and contributions of a variety of stakeholders, this project assesses how and why Aboriginal women are involved in mining negotiations and project development, measures to facilitate women’s involvement in mining development and negotiations, and how to improve the relationships between mining industry and Aboriginal stakeholders.
