"Part 2 of Indigenous Pedagogies & Charter School under Assault &
The Militarization of Indian Country"
Marcos Aguilar, Executive Director of Academia Semillas del Pueblo (http://www.dignidad.org/), discusses, in this two-part interview, the challenges to operating a charter school based on Indigenous practices and methodologies, the resistance to non-indigenous individual and institutional challenges calling for the schools closure, and what does Indigenous urban in Los Angeles mean. Last week, the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Directors denied school’s charter for the high school component. Turn in for further updates.
