Engaging in Educational Leadership: The Generosity of Spirit
Benham, Maenette; Murakami-Ramalho, Elizabeth
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v13 n1 p77-91 Jan 2010
This study presents key principles and a model of engaged leadership in indigenous communities. Engaged leadership champions children and youth, delivers learning and teaching within the context of place and spirit, and occurs in partnerships with diverse communities. Stories of educational leaders grounded in the concepts of "ha," place, relations, and collective action are included to: (a) posit the need for alternative indigenous educational settings that emerge from indigenous lifeways; (b) suggest a model of indigenous educational leadership that engages, ensures, and nurtures an ethos of collective will and supports indigenous sovereignty, culture, and language; and (c) share the reflections of educational leaders that articulate a vision for leading, learning, teaching, and living that is culturally respectful and socially just. (Contains 1 figure and 5 notes.)
