Indigenous Education

New Directions in Theory and Practice

For Indigenous students and teachers alike, formal teaching and learning occurs in contested places. In Indigenous Education, 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 and invite readers to embrace new, informed ways of schooling. Part of a growing body of research, this is an exciting, powerful volume for Indigenous and non-Indigenous teachers, researchers, policy makers, and scholars, and a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the contested spaces of contemporary education. Foreword by Linda Tuhiwai Smith. Contributors: Jill Bevan-Brown, Frank Deer, Wiremu Doherty, Dwayne Donald, Ngarewa Hawera, Margie Hohepa, Robert Jahnke, Patricia Maringi G.

"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 ... 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 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


"The volume editors have woven these chapters into a tapestry of research, meaning, and reflection that is cohesive and easy to follow. This work will be embraced widely and will further the evolution of an Indigenously-informed philosophy of education."—Greg Cajete, Professor, University of New Mexico
