New Directions in Theory and Practice
For Indigenous students and teachers alike, formal teaching and learning occurs in contested places. Here, leading scholars in contemporary Indigenous education from North America, New Zealand, and Hawaii disentangle aspects of colonialism from education to advance alternative philosophies of instruction. From multiple disciplines, contributors explore Indigenous education from theoretical and applied perspectives. Part of a growing body of research, this is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the contested spaces of contemporary education.
"Indigenous Education is . .. foundational. The collected chapters cover a broad range of experiences, education levels, and expertise, which makes it more practical for a general audience. This book would be a useful starting place for Indigenous educators looking for solidarity and inspiration for making changes to the systems in place. .. [This] book would be just as useful for a non-Native reader. .."- Noah Patton
"Indigenous Education documents the uphill battle against stand-pat public schooling. Anyone who stepped foot in a classroom as student or parent will find common ground with these eloquent critics. ... Indigenous Education is compelling and frankly infuriating, but don’t take the editors’ word for it. Read your child’s textbook for yourself. "- Holly Doan
"Indigenous Education...is a timely and comprehensive text that allows the reader to explore the expanses of education through Native academic voices."- Eōmailani Kukahiko, Native American and Indigenous Studies, Fall 2021
