    Career transitions from secondary school can be a time of challenge and change for all young people. During this time Indigenous youth, often face difficulties related to further education, employment and sometimes prejudice, our study has attempted to shed light on some of the factors that have helped and hindered First Nation's youth in making a successful the transition from school to post-secondary life. A sample of 8 (n = 8) First Nations young adults, aged 20 to 28 years, were interviewed using a Critical Incident Technique. Study findings have implications for a range of counseling, educational and community settings.
