Learning to Hunt: Mini Case
Authors: Barnhardt and Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley
Themes: Education Reform, Family and Youth, Human Development
Tribes: Alaska Native, Inupiaq
This mini case study seeks to extend our understanding of the processes of learning that occur within and at the intersection of diverse world views and knowledge systems, drawing on experiences derived from across Fourth World contexts, with an emphasis on the Alaska context in particular. The case outlines the rationale behind a comprehensive program of educational initiatives that are closely articulated with the emergence of a new generation of indigenous scholars who are seeking to move the role of indigenous knowledge and learning from the margins to the center of the educational research arena and thus take on some of the most intractable and salient issues of our times.
