Coyote and Raven Talk about Indigenizing Environmental Education: Or Reconfiguring the Shenanigans of Otis O'Dewey Esquire
Cole, Peter
Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, v17 p15-29 2012
First Nations tricksters, Coyote and Raven, work to indigenize Environmental Education but run up against mainstream languages, technologies, and educational practices. They try to do an end-run around the cognitive backfield, then portage through marginal spaces, but find that working between Indigenous languages and mainstream ones can work best by being conversational and bringing in humour and ways of knowing that do not only privilege post-Enlightenment agency but use understandings that gesture toward localized Indigenous practices and changing West Coast (Canada) geographies. (Contains 1 note.)
