Sandra Styres has published a new book, Pathways for Remembering and Recognizing Indigenous Thought in Education

This book is an exploration into some of the shared cross-cultural themes that inform Indigenous thought and the ways they may be used to frame an Indigenous informed philosophy of education that can be adapted across diverse contexts and places.  The book is a wampum philosophy of education based on contemporary (re)memberings of very old knowledges woven with the tangled strings and chipped beads of colonial relations. Indigenous philosophies generate nuanced tensions, challenges and contradictions that can be very tangled and messy as we consider them within the context of colonial relations of power and privilege inherent in current educational systems. As such the book is an articulation of the ways Indigenous thought informs decolonizing approaches that disrupt colonial relations, suffuse education and schooling, and have possibilities for transformative teaching practices. It complicates decolonizing approaches by acknowledging the complex web of colonial relations while not losing sight of the ways those relationships have and continue to inform how we do education.
