Indigenous Children’s Survivance in Public Schools examines the cultural, social, and political terrain of Indigenous education by providing accounts of the complicated discursive work of teaching Indigenous students in urban and suburban settings. Through a series of counterstories, the book surveys a range of educational issues, including implementation of Native-themed curriculum, teachers’ attempts to support Native students in their classrooms, and efforts to claim physical and cultural space in the district, among others. As a collective, these stories highlight the ways that colonization continues to shape Native students’ experiences in schools. By documenting the nuanced intelligence, courage, artfulness, and survivance of Native students, families, and educators, the book provides a corrective to deficit framing250s of Indigenous students, inviting educators to examine their own contexts for knowledge, insights, and resources to better support Native students in urban public schools.
