Description

Drawing on; international law; treaties; the work of other Indigenous scholars; and particularly personal experiences; Marie Battiste records the nature of Eurocentric models of education and their upsetting impacts on Indigenous knowledge. Reporting the negative consequences of forced assimilation; the racism inherent to colonial systems of education; and the failure of present educational policies for Aboriginal populations; Decolonizing Education (PDF) presents a new model of education; arguing the maintenance of Aboriginal knowledge is an Aboriginal right. Central to this process is the repositioning of Indigenous humanities; languages; and sciences as vital fields of knowledge; vitalizing a knowledge system that includes both Indigenous and Eurocentric thinking.

Review

With this ebook; Battiste helps us to see the ways that this imperialist approach to education continues today in the Canadian educational system. … what I am most thankful for from this work is the vision Battiste lays out for the makeover of how we think about knowledge and learning in this country. It is this part of her work in particular that makes this a related read for any Canadian; not solely educators. — Tamara Shantz Intotemak; Vol. 43; No. 1 2014-03-01
