Indigenous Innovation

Universalities and Peculiarities


Rooted in diverse cultures and in distinct regions of the world, Indigenous people have for generations created, maintained, and negotiated clear and explicit relationships with their environments. Despite numerous historical disruptions and steady iterations of imperialism that continue through today, indigenous communities embody communities of struggle/resistance and intense vitality/creativity. In this work, a fellowship of Indigenous research has emerged, and our collective intent is to share critical narratives that link together Indigenous worldviews, culturally-based notions of ecology, and educational practices in places and times where human relationships with the world that are restorative, transformative, and just are being sought.

A superb book for university and graduate students seeking to understand the historical and current state of diverse indigenous communities innovating for community empowerment amid uneven and unequal processes of globalization......A book on comparative case studies of indigenous education, with a focus on innovative community-based projects, written by mostly indigenous scholars, is indeed a unique contribution to the literature.” —Anthony Abulencia Santa Ana & Monisha Bajaj, book review in Adult Education Quarterly
