About this Textbook

Global Indigenous Communities is a wide-ranging examination of global Indigenous communities that continue to suffer from colonization and assimilation issues, including intergenerational trauma. The scholarship is interdisciplinary; it is not easily categorized as sociology, anthropology, ethnography, or philosophy, but cuts across all of these disciplines, as well as Indigenous methodologies. The book not only presents an academic study of Indigenous issues, covering Indigenous community life, religion, the environment, economic matters, education, and healthcare, but also incorporates contributions from Carol Locust, EdD, that reflect on her lifetime of experience in Indigenous education and healthcare. Each studied prism of Indigenous life is revealed to be impacted by the experience of intergenerational trauma that results from continued colonization. Ultimately, this book aims to bridge the communication gap between Western and Indigenous scholarship and readership, artfully combining Indigenous approaches with a traditional academic style.
