Indigenous peoples around the world are calling for control over their education in order to reaffirm their identities and defend their rights. In Latin America the indigenous peoples, national governments and international organisations have identified intercultural education as a means of contributing to this process. The book investigates education for and by indigenous peoples and examines the relationship between theoretical and methodological developments and formal practice. An ethnographic study of the Arakmbut people of the Peruvian Amazon, provides a detailed example of the social, cultural and educational change indigenous peoples are experiencing, an insight into Arakmbut oral learning and teaching practices as well as a review of their conceptualisations of knowledge, pedagogy and evaluation. The models of intercultural education being promoted by Latin American governments are, nevertheless, biliterate and school-based. The book analyses indigenous and non-indigenous models based on different conceptualisations of culture and curriculum in the context of the Arakmbut search for an education which respects their dynamic oral cultural traditions and identity, provides them with a qualitatively relevant education about the wider society and addresses the intercultural lives they lead.

Table of Contents
“While certainly required reading for scholars and practitioners of indigenous education, this book will be useful for other educators as well, in that it questions much of the common wisdom on biliteracy and minority schooling.”
“Sheila Aikman of the University of London has written an informative and timely ethnography in the tradition of British Social Anthropology, which describes the past, present, and possible future of schooling for the Arakmbut. This book will be of value to al those involved with educational reform in Latin America and indigenous education more generally.”
