Indigenous Knowledge and Education
Sites of Struggle, Strength, and Survivance
Edited by Malia Villegas, Sabina Rak Neugebauer, and Kerry R. VenegasIndigenous Knowledge is resiliently local in character and thus poses a distinct contrast to the international, more impersonal system of knowledge prevalent in Western educational institutions. In the words of Mik’maq scholar Marie Battiste—a leading proponent of Indigenous Knowledge and a contributor to this volume—Indigenous Knowledge expresses “the vibrant relationships between the people, their ecosystems, and the other living beings and spirits that share their lands.” Indigenous Knowledge and Education argues that such knowledge has much to offer schools and students in the United States and beyond.
