A thesis for the degree of Master of Social Work. The purpose of this

study is to support White social workers who wish to become allies in

their child welfare work with Aboriginal children, families, and

communities. It is based on the premise that it is crucial for

Aboriginal children to remain connected with their families,

communities, and cultures. To this end White social workers need to

consider practicing in a different way. Using the stories of five White

social workers on their journey to become allies, this thesis identifies

a process which can support other would-be White allies on their

journey. An autoethnographical method informed

by Critical Race Theory and White Racial and Social Development Models

was used to create a thematic analysis of the journals of participating

social workers. Five main themes emerged that contribute to a process

others can use to guide their own journeys to becoming White allies in

their practice
