Indian Subjects: Hemispheric Perspectives on the History of Indigenous Education brings together an outstanding group of anthropology, history, law, education, literature, and Native studies scholars. This book addresses indigenous education throughout different regions and eras, predominantly within the twentieth century. Many of the contributors have tackled the boarding school experiences of their communities. The histories of these boarding schools, whether run by the federal government or religious orders, dominate academic and community views of indigenous education, and the lessons learned demonstrate the devastating impact of colonialism and assimilation efforts just as they document multiple Native responses. The lessons from these histories in the United States and Canada have been valuable, but provide a fairly narrow view of indigenous educational history. Indian Subjects pushes beyond that history toward hemispheric and even global conversations, fostering a critically neglected scholarly dialogue that has too often been limited by regional and national boundaries.
