Indigenous Education and Cultural Resistance: A Decolonizing Project
Wane, Njoki Nathani
Curriculum Inquiry, v39 n1 p159-178 Jan 2009
This article presents a review of three chapters in "Part II, Section E: Internationalizing Curriculum" of "The SAGE Handbook of Curriculum and Instruction" (F. M. Connelly, M. F. He, J. I. Phillion, Eds.; Sage Publications, 2008). These chapters ["Indigenous Resistance and Renewal: From Colonizing Practices to Self-Determination" (Donna Deyhle, Karen Swisher, Tracy Stevens, Ruth Trinidad Galvan. Chapter 16, pp. 329-348); "Globalization and Curriculum" (Kathryn M. Anderson-Levitt. Chapter 17, pp. 349-368); and "Community Education in Developing Countries: The Quiet Revolution in Schooling" (Joseph P. Farrell. Chapter 18, pp. 369-389)] focus on different aspects of internationalizing curriculum, while addressing the need for educational reform from a global perspective. In this review, Wane provides a summary of the three chapters, followed by an overview of decolonization that interweaves the main themes of these chapters with her own schooling experience as a Kenyan educated in boarding schools run by European nuns.
