Abstract

Critical indigenism is an aboriginal-inspired re/visioning of critical pedagogy, a re/grounding of Freirean praxis, and a challenge to “Western” knowledge making. This paper, based on the author’s journeys into Indian country, explores the ways that Native American art—as expressed in three diverse arenas: cinema, Rez Rap, and pottery-making—offer opportunities to explore the intersection of critical indigenism and adult learning and education.

Critical Indigenism and Adult Learning and Education

Critical indigenism is an aboriginal-inspired re/visioning of critical pedagogy, a re/grounding of Freirean praxis, and a challenge to “Western” knowledge making. This paper, based on the author’s journeys into Indian country, explores the ways that Native American art—as expressed in three diverse arenas: cinema, Rez Rap, and pottery-making—offer opportunities to explore the intersection of critical indigenism and adult learning and education.
