This article provides results from focus groups and individual interviews with current and former students concerning the use of cultural resilience in obtaining higher education degrees in response to: What advice would you give to other First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students concerning entry and retention in college? The informants provided rich and varied information based upon their own personal experiences which resulted in four central themes: (1) Indigenous identity; (2) personal considerations; (3) education as a collective benefit to Indigenous peoples, and (4) educational supports. Each theme was described and expounded upon via the voices of the participants.
