Aboriginal Education and Anti-Racist Education: Building Alliances Across Cultural and Racial Identity

Title

Aboriginal Education and Anti-Racist Education: Building Alliances Across Cultural and Racial Identity

Description

A critical race analysis could provide both Aboriginal students and their university student advisors with knowledge to understand and potentially challenge the effects and processes of racialization that have historically, legally, and politically divided Aboriginal communities and families. Coalition and alliances can be made within and across the diversity within Aboriginal and non‐Aboriginal peoples’ lives through a common understanding and commitment to anti‐racist education. A critical anti‐racist education could provide a foundation to forge alliances between diverse Aboriginal and non‐Aboriginal communities in a common search for social justice in education. This article discusses concepts of identity, identity politics, and provides definitions of race andpdg racialisation along with language and cultural revitalization.
