"Becoming Family details the creation of Frontier Collegiate Institute and traces the lives of some of its graduates from their home communities to life at Frontier Collegiate and beyond. Becoming Family shares the stories of some of Manitoba's most well-known Aboriginal and future leaders as they leave their homes seeking a chance to attend a high school with a well-respected academic program unavailable in their home communities. The book delves into Frontier Collegiate Institute's past and explores the future of this institutional anomaly: a public high school, with a residence, that has been meeting the needs of northern and Aboriginal students for 50 years. While Becoming Family is in part about the history of the school, it is primarily about the day-to-day struggles of students living, learning, and growing up away from home." - back cover.
