First Nations Hockey Players’ Experiences When Leaving Their Home Community for Hockey

First Nations Hockey Players’ Experiences When Leaving Their Home Community for Hockey

My name is Jaime Carpenter, and I am a Master of Arts Student in the School of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa.

I am conducting a research project that looks at First Nations Hockey Players’ Experiences When Leaving Their Home Community for Hockey and How it Changes Their Constructions of Community Well-being under the supervision of Dr. Audrey Giles.

The purpose of the study is to explore the differences that male and female First Nations hockey players experience when playing in the mainstream context and to see the similarities and/or differences from the male and female experience.

As well as looking at how their constructions of well-being can change when returning back to their home communities, or if they do not change.Participants must have moved away from home to play a higher level of hockey and/or elite hockey, identify as a First Nations person, and lastly identify as a male or female. Also must be 18+.
