The Indigenous Child Project (ICP) and the Aboriginal HIPPY Documentation Project (AHDP) were 2 of 10 component studies in the Child Health, Intervention, Learning, and Development (CHILD) Project, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.2 Jessica Ball, the university-based principal investigator for the ICP, partnered with two on-reserve First Nations communities and two urban Aboriginal community groups to deliver the project. Lucy Le Mare, the university-based principal investigator for AHDP, partnered with Aboriginal HIPPY Canada (the national office of an early education program) and five on-reserve First Nations communities to conduct the AHDP. Both studies ran from 2003 to 2007 and involved multiple Indigenous community partners with an interest in promoting children’s development.
