This thesis examines the life of a First Nation family living in the community of Stony Point (Aazhoodena). In the case of Stony Point, little has been written beyond the chronicles of the standoff of Ipperwash Provincial Park in 1995. Building from practices relating to culture, identity and tradition used throughout the community's history, this thesis explores how the practices of one family at Stony Point has led to a resurgence in the community and further considers some of the reasons why this community has survived the relentless legal and environmental pressures to remove the members of Stony Point from their land and were pivotal in the creation of the community as it exists today and have allowed a space for members of Stony Point to redefine - on their own terms - what is possible for the future of the community.
