Dr. Marie Battiste
Director, Aboriginal Education Research Centre, University of Saskatchewan


"The words from this book will be cited repatedly and gratefully by countless people, as they walk between two worlds, crossing cultural bridges and attempting to create a balanced and harmonious understanding of the world we live in."

Dr. Nancy Maryboy
President, Indigenous Education Institute, Friday Harbor, WA; Adjunct Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Northern Arizona, Flagstaff, Arizona


"I found this book fascinating. It offered me a clear summary of a wide corpus of work framing scientific and Indigenous ways of knowing .... I will definitely use the publication with my pre-service and in-service teachers in science and technology education and Education for Sustainable Development classes.”

Dr. Steve Alsop
Faculty of Education, York University, Toronto, Ontario


"I regard this book as seminal in helping people to not only recognize the need to build cultural bridges but to also provide some ways of doing this."
