While the concept of epistemology is a Western construct, it has gained traction in Indigenous academic research, policy, and practice. The area of Indigenous epistemologies, while borrowing from this trajectory, moves in a different direction. One of the seminar's central goals is to examine how Indigenous epistemologies inform culturally relevant curriculum at different levels of schooling, teaching, and learning. We will focus on the impact of Indigenous epistemologies on areas such as language and literacy, science education, teacher training, student learning, higher education, and intellectual production in the context of the United States.
