Reviews

'This exciting volume adds to the growing body of studies and theory on indigenous knowledge and indigenous epistemology in the social sciences, especially education. Situated within a critical theoretical paradigm, the editors and authors address the significance of indigenous perspectives and concepts in knowledge creation and their potential for rethinking public education in several cultural settings in Africa, Australia, Canada, and the USA. Anyone concerned with the relevance of indigenous epistemology in guiding education needs to read this book.' - Karen Ann Watson-Gegeo, Anthropologist in Education, University of California, Davis, USA
