9780132105576: Bridging Cultures: Indigenous and Scientific Ways of Knowing Nature
Review:

"The text has a wide appeal and range of knowledge that would benefit both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal teachers, students and teacher candidates, as well as specialist scientists or generalists. The book raises the awareness of a gap in literature regarding an understanding of the diverse worldviews of Indigenous peoples ...

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."

Pauline Waiti
Manager, Maori and Pasifika Education Publications Team, Learning Media Ltd., Wellington, New Zealand
