Abstract: Newfoundland and Labrador, like other regions in Canada, is in a period of social transformation due to a number of processes to resolve outstanding political and socio-economic issues with the province's Aboriginal peoples. In addition, major initiatives in the region such as the Davis Inlet relocation and the development of the mega Voisey's Bay nickel deposit pose significant social risks and opportunities. Greater political autonomy and self-determination for the Aboriginal governments also creates obligation and responsibility for the social welfare of their citizens. What is the place for the social work profession, Aboriginal social workers and for Memorial University of Newfoundland's School of Social Work during this era of profound social change? This article explores the concurrent journeys of the Aboriginal peoples of the province, the School of Social Work, and an Aboriginal social work student as each grapple for meaning and relevance in building a new more socially just reality.
