About this book

This book illustrates a pathway for knowledge production to benefit from interweaving the seemingly disparate historical experiences of Indigenous Peoples and computer science education. The resulting practice of ancestral computing for sustainability holds the power to mitigate the destructive forces of the field, while extending the potential of traditionally underserved and unheard populations. Reimagining the field of computer science, interwoven with traditional lifeways, presents compelling new discoveries in research and harnesses the rich tapestries that are Indigenous populations. Returning healthy lifeways to a center stage long-occupied by tightly controlled, Eurocentric learning methods opens worlds of opportunity that have felt lost to time.

Reviews

“This path-breaking text successfully counters the coloniality of power by bridging the stubborn gap between ancestral knowledge systems and Eurocentric epistemologies, restoring, in the process, community cultural dignity in computer science education.” (Angela Valenzuela, Professor, University of Texas at Austin, USA, and author of Subtractive Schooling: U.S.-Mexican Youth and the Politics of Caring)

“Itzel's courageous journey toward decolonizing computer science education illuminates impacts of culture, community, and ecosystem on learner experiences and understandings.” (Sharon S. Nelson-Barber, Director, Culture and Language in STEM Education, WestEd)

“This book is thought-provoking for anyone who is interested in learning from a completely different paradigm than the dominant digital culture.” (Jane Margolis, Senior Researcher, University of California, Los Angeles, USA, and lead author of Stuck in the Shallow End: Education, Race, and Computing)

“Everyone concerned with critical pedagogy and environmental education must read this book!” (Richard Kahn, Core Faculty Member, Antioch University, USA, and author of Critical Pedagogy, Ecoliteracy, and Planetary Crisis: The Ecopedagogy Movement)
