Indigenous Education around the World. Workshop Papers from the World Indigenous People's Conference: Education (Albuquerque, New Mexico, June 15-22, 1996).
Barnhardt, Ray, Comp.
This proceedings contains 35 reports, presentations, and workshop summaries from the fourth triennial World Indigenous People's Conference: Education, held in June 1996. The papers are organized around six broad headings: research papers and reports, tertiary program descriptions, teacher education, community initiatives, language, and health education. Two additional sections contain the Coolangata Statement--the conference's "declaration of indigenous people's education rights--and a complete set of workshop abstracts and presenter information. The presentations deal with a wide range of indigenous educational issues in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. They demonstrate that indigenous definition and control of the educational agenda has progressed on several fronts in all of the nations represented at the conference. A tidal wave of initiatives is under way, aimed at placing indigenous beliefs, values, knowledge systems, and ways of knowing into the educational arena at all levels. (Author/SV)
