Towards an Indigenist, Gaian Pedagogy of Food: Deimperializing Foodscapes in the Classroom
Ma Rhea, Zane
Journal of Environmental Education, v49 n2 p103-116 2018
This study takes food as its scape to propose an Indigenist, Gaian pedagogy and asks what food studies might reveal ecopedagogically for approaches to teaching about Indigenous matters in the context of environmental education and its research. Drawing on empirical research about food and Indigenous-settler relations in Australia, and through analysis of data amassed from student assignments on food sources conducted over a six-year period, I find that there is resistance to taking an Indigenist approach to critical, place-based education (PBE) even as Indigenous scholarship argues for its urgent need. Even more muted is the recognition of Gaian understanding of the need to preserve the languages of "Scapes" to help with this work.
