Familia and Comunidad-Based Saberes: Learning in an Indigenous Heritage Community
Urrieta, Luis, Jr.
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v44 n3 p320-335 Sep 2013
This article explores how children and youth learned indigenous heritage "saberes" (knowings) through intent community participation in Nocutzepo, Mexico. The "familia" (family) and "comunidad" (community)-based saberes were valuable for skills acquisition, but most important for learning indigenous forms of belonging, responsibility, and integration into adult life. Understanding indigenous heritage philosophies of learning and familia and comunidad saberes can help expand educators' knowledge about the learning practices of indigenous heritage families and students in schools.
