Red Pedagogy

An excellent book about the relevance of and need for Indigenous forms of education as a means to cultural survival for Indigenous peoples and for the survival of the human bioshere as a whole. For myself, it more clearly defines and distniguishes two paradigms: Indigenous civilization versus Colonial civilization.(Education)
