dc.description.abstract The literature review examined mixed-ancestry Aboriginal identity through the impact of colonization, legislated policies and practices, racism, images, culture and traditions and living in an urban setting. An Indigenous research method which acknowledged experience, storytelling and sharing relationships as a legitimate way of knowing was used. Interviews with individuals of mixed-ancestry residing in the city of Winnipeg and personal reflections of the researcher were used to answer the research question. The factors explored were: connection to a home community, role of family, socio economic status, obstacles, cultural resources, legislated policies and color of skin. The most influential factor was the knowledge and supports received in the University setting. The legacy of legislated definitions, skin color, parental silence, and lack of contact with a home community impacted the participants' formation of their identities as Aboriginal people. en_US
