Envisioning the Future with Aboriginal Breast Cancer Survivors
AbstractPhotovoice is a newly emerging participatory method of research. In this article, we discuss findings resulting from a photovoice project completed with young Aboriginal women who had experienced breast cancer. Three key interrelated themes linked to ethnicity, age, and identity, were particularly salient for the research participants. These are conceptualized as: (1) shame and silence; (2) resilience and strength; and (3) support. Résumé La photo-voix est une nouvelle technologie participative de recherche émergente. Dans cet article, nous discutons des conclusions qui résultent du projet de photo-voix complété par une jeune autochtone qui a souffert du cancer du sein. Trois thèmesclés étroitement liés à l'ethnicité, l'âge, et l'identité, étaient saillants pour les participantes à la recherche. Les trois sont conceptualisés ainsi: (1) la honte et le silence; (2) la résistance et la force; (3) le support.
