To be able to promote effective anti-colonial and decolonial education, it is imperative that educators employ indigenous epistemologies that seek to threaten, replace and reimagine colonial thinking and practice. Indigeneity and Decolonial Resistance hopes to contribute to the search for a more radical decolonial education and practice that allows for the coexistence of, and conversation among, “multiple-epistemes.” The book approaches the topics from three perspectives:
• the thought that our epistemological frameworks must consider the body of the knowledge producer, place, history, politics and contexts within which knowledge is produced,
• that the anti-colonial is intimately connected to decolonization, and by extension, decolonization cannot happen solely through Western science scholarship, and
• that the complex problems and challenges facing the world today defy universalist solutions, but can still be remedied.

Indigeneity and Decolonial Resistance is an excellent text for use in a variety of upper-division undergraduate and graduate classrooms. It is also a valuable addition to the libraries of writers and researchers interested in indigenous studies and decolonialism.

Reviews & Endorsements:

"Challenging the tropes of dominant sociopolitical theory, Indigeneity and Decolonial Resistance is a bold, brazen and uncompromising collection of essays that stands at the cutting edge of decolonial studies."

Peter McLaren, Distinguished Professor in Critical Studies, Attallah College of Educational Studies, Chapman University

"Boldly unmasking and challenging the colonial logic that underpins homogenizing classroom instruction across the disciplines and affirming the anti-colonial theoretical foundations of epistemic resistance rooted in indigenous spirituality, ways of knowing and being, this visionary collection offers vital conceptual tools and pedagogical possibilities that are bound to advance the global struggle for humanizing knowledge production and anti-racist education practice."
