We explore how education is not only about pedagogy but also about politics. Who gets to determine what is taught and how? What has succeeded, where are the challenges and why is Indigenous language education important. While there is considerable literature dealing with other movements towards autonomy, independence, separatism and self-determination within European, South and North American states, less is known about the perspective of Indigenous communities and nations engaged in cultural and linguistic survival and revival. A related question is how such processes can lead to new forms of Indigenous governance and territorial control.
