About this product
- DescriptionIndigeus kwledges are understood as the commonsense ideas and cultural kwledges of local peoples concerning the everyday realities of living. This definition refers to the epistemic saliency of cultural traditions, values, belief systems and world views that, in any indigeus society, are imparted to the younger generation by community elders. It is also refers to world views that are products of a profoundly direct experience of nature and its relationship with the social world. Bringing new and complex readings to the term 'indigeus', this collection of essays from Canadian and international contributors is an invitation to critically engage in the discussion of indigeus kwledges and their implication for academic decolonization. The essays are divided into four sections: Situating Indigeus Kwledges: Definitions and Boundaries; Indigeus Kwledge: Resistance and Advocacy; Indigeus Kwledge and the Academy; and Indigeus Kwledge and Transforming Practices. Collectively the essays situate indigeus kwledges in relation to conventional kwledges, validate the existence of multiple sources of kwledge, and examine the varying strategies, projects, and theories that are currently being developed in support of indigeus kwledges. The book draws attention to some of the nuances, contradictions, and contestations in affirming the place of indigeus kwledges in the academy, while maintaining that different bodies of kwledges continually influence each other to reveal the dynamism of all kwledge systems.
