dc.description.abstract This study looks at life in a northern Native community through the stories and thoughts of the people who live there. They share their history, their culture and their everyday life. Through this process the meaning of leisure emerges. The related literature review involves current conceptualizations of leisure and Native history and culture. A qualitative research approach was used and data collection was completed with the use of indepth interviews, field notes and a researcher's journal. Data analysis involved the coding of material with descriptors and organizing these into themes. These themes make up the resulting conceptualization of leisure. The study can be put to practical use in that those of us from other cultures can read and learn about life in the north and about Native people. The information gathered can also be used to plan leisure and recreation programs within this community and other similar communities. en_US
