Searching for Books & Articles about Indigenous Education

Finding materials related to Indigenous education can be challenging due to inconsistencies in the language used to catalogue books and articles. Terms such as Indigenous, Aboriginal, and First Nations, as well as outdated colonial language are used and applied to literature originating from various historical and cultural contexts. Consequently it is very important to apply a range of terms when searching to gain an understanding of how using these search terms produces different results. Below are some search terms related to Indigenous education. Click on any of the examples to see a list of results in the catalogue.
