Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

Indigenous people have often been confronted with education systems that ignore their cultural and historical perspectives. This insightful volume contributes to our understanding of indigenous empowerment through education, and creates a new foundation for implementing specialized indigenous/minority education worldwide, engaging the simultaneous projects of cultural preservation and social integration. A vital work for scholars in Native American studies, ethnic studies, and education.
