Igniting the Sparkle
An Indigenous Science Education Model

Are you concerned about our current educational system? Do you have the vague sense that our educators “compartmentalize” learning and ignore the ecological and cultural contributions to our growth as intelligent human beings? Do you feel something more could be done to prepare our people for a meaningful life? Well, if you share some of these concerns, you may find some answers in this book.

This work presents concepts that have been used for thousands of years to educate Native People. If you are a teacher, this book is a must! If you are just a concerned citizen, this book will enlighten you about another, older way of learning. Dr. Cajete shows how we can integrate native ways of learning with our own to revitalize our flagging educational system.

Dr. Cajete’s previous book, Look to the Mountain, which presented the foundations for the educational perspective of Indigenous People, has become a popular adjunct to educational curricula in many schools and universities in North America. This book, while complete in itself, expands the concepts developed in the earlier work and presents models that can facilitate the education of Native Americans and other Indigenous People around the world.
