The Dirt: Indigenizing Education

The University of Arizona's Indigenous Teachers Education Program recently released a book, Indigenizing Education: Transformative Research, Theories, and Praxis. The work brings various voices together – scholars, educators, and community members – to reimagine learning processes that center Indigenous education in Indigenous pedagogies.
Each contributing author shares anecdotes of the strength and resilience of Indigenous cultures, and provides pathways to activate agency, social change, and advocacy with and for Indigenous peoples as they enact sovereignty, self-education, and Native nation-building.

Across the chapters, the authors demonstrate how they have enacted various theories to Indigenize various teaching practices and engaged in critical dialogues about commitment to intellectual and spiritual sovereignty. The book makes significant contributions to the fields of Indigenous studies, culturally-sustaining pedagogy, and decolonization.
