This ground-breaking text explores the intersection between dominant modes of critical educational theory and the socio-political landscape of American Indian education.

"In the end a Red pedagogy embraces an educative process that works to reenchant the universe, to reconnect peoples to the land, and is as much about belief and acquiescence as it is about questioning and empowerment. ...The invitation is for scholars, educators and students to exercise critical consciousness at the same time they recognize that the world of knowledge far exceeds our ability to know" (p. 176)

I would have liked to give this book 4.5 stars if I could have (note to Goodreads: consi

This is a very empowering, very invigorating text. If you're here, it's safe to say you're a Native or a non-Native ally, and even if you're not- this text is an extremely valuable addition to any serious History of Native America. Grande carefully and meticulously constructs a polemical approach to indigenous studies by unpacking various forms of neocolonialism, both within the academy and in society at large.

If you're a reader on the issues of indigenous sovereignty most of this won't come as

This book is one that cannot be easily read in one setting. It is extremely dense, for better and for worse. Grande's historical analysis is well-articulated and deeply thought provoking.

Enjoyed the critiques of critical theory - something often seen as off limits in scholarly discourse. However, I was hoping for more in the way of connection to practical realities of classrooms. Having read the 10th anniversary edition in which commentators contributed, at least some of them were looking for the same. While it may seem short cited & limiting to make exemplars explicit, to do so is perhaps the only way to illustrate how red pedagogy gets enacted in a meaningful way. There is ...more

So much, I need to revisit to discuss in more depth what I learned, but it opened my eyes to a new perspective on critical approaches to education, put political work in perspective and made the connections between geography, education, community and social justice pretty plain (albeit in a fairly dense academic form). Also so good/refreshing to hear an American Indian voice.

Very challenging read, not for the faint-of-heart.

Grande is an amazing writer, but it takes quite a bit of energy to understand. She addresses the disconnect between critical pedagogy and the American Indian community.
