How Might Native Science Inform "Informal Science Learning"?
Brayboy, Bryan McKinley Jones; Castagno, Angelina E.
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v3 n3 p731-750 Sep 2008
This article examines the literature on Native science in order to address the presumed binaries between formal and informal science learning and between Western and Native science. We situate this discussion within a larger discussion of culturally responsive schooling for Indigenous youth and the importance of Indigenous epistemologies and contextualized knowledges within Indigenous communities.
