Overview

This ground-breaking text explores the intersection between dominant modes of critical educational theory and the socio-political landscape of American Indian education. Grande asserts that, with few exceptions, the matters of Indigenous people and Indian education have been either largely ignored or indiscriminately absorbed within critical theories of education. Furthermore, American Indian scholars and educators have largely resisted engagement with critical educational theory, tending to concentrate instead on the production of historical monographs, ethnographic studies, tribally-centered curricula, and site-based research. Such a focus stems from the fact that most American Indian scholars feel compelled to address the socio-economic urgencies of their own communities, against which engagement in abstract theory appears to be a luxury of the academic elite. While the author acknowledges the dire need for practical-community based research, she maintains that the global encroachment on Indigenous lands, resources, cultures and communities points to the equally urgent need to develop transcendent theories of decolonization and to build broad-based coalitions.

Editorial Reviews

Joel Spring
Sandy Grande's book is an important contribution to the scholarship on Native American education and it contains a critical analysis and guide to current thinking. It also offers a powerful agenda for charting the future course of Native American education.
Steven Crum
Although critical of dominant modes, Grande nevertheless maintains that scholars should not reject all of them, but instead maintain a critical stance, a key component of Red Pedagoogy. This book is necessary reading for anyone seeking 'emancipatory pedagogies' for indigenous people.
Peter McLaren
Red Pedagogy is sure to become a classic text in the field of critical education. Grande's book represents arguably the most significant advancement within the critical pedagogical literature in recent decades. It is a book that cannot be ignored. This book will define the central terms of the educational debate over social justice for years to come. It is a landmark work by one of education's most important new scholars and activists.
Adult Education Quarterly
Sandy Grande ably succeeds in defining the common ground between American Indian intellectuals and critical scholars engaged in anti-imperialist and anticapitalist struggles for decolonization, an unintended but plausible and relatively absent anticolonial indigenous contribution to critical adult education.
