Indigenous societies today face difficult choices: can they develop, modernize, and advance without endangering their sacred traditions and communal identity? Specifically, can their communities benefit from national education while resisting the tendency of state-imposed programs to undermine their cultural sovereignty, language, and traditions? According to Lois Meyer an ...more

A must for any radical "educator", student, or anyone related to the education field. Presented in a dialogue fashion, commentators respond to ideas and notions put forth by Chomsky. My particular favorite commentary is "Beyond Education", for it reveals the misnomer of "indigenous education" and reveals a very real need to decolonize our most intimate minds. Indigenous populations see living as learning, and this compulsory education system we've set up here is a structure created and enforced ...more

I just started this book and finished the beginning interviews. I LOVE it so far. Noam Chomsky is super interesting in his critique of the Western educational system, for starters. Can't wait to keep reading.

"This book is unique, thought-provoking and inspiring. The voices included in this edited collection, most of them unheard in mainstream Western academia, not only denounce the crimes committed against Indigenous peoples, but also reflect decades of Indigenous struggle, resistance, hope and commitment. . . . This book speaks to students, teachers, administrators and researchers from different disciplines and invites them to work together and follow the exemplary struggles of Indigenous peoples i ...more

When is multiculturalism a bad thing? Could the answer have anything to do with literature? The new book, New World of Indigenous Resistance, examines this concept in a way that not only fascinates but educates.

The book focuses on South America’s regions, and has a series of essays discussing issues that face an area largely unknown by those in the U.S. Usually we only hear of earthquakes or small regional clashes that mean nothing to us, but there’s far more to explore. Author and historian No

One of the most compelling collection of thoughts on real learning from educators who are at the forefront of the battle to push back the colonising of minds. Anybody who believes that we learn through multiple knowledge systems and that this diversity is critical to how we shape our future must read this. I have been reading this collection for close to a year now - because I keep going back to re-read some very powerful sections. It has become my touchstone for any thinking that I am doing on ...more
