About the book: This Pearson Original edition is published for Queensland University of Technology.

Introductory Indigenous Studies in Education: Reflection and the importance of knowing is written specifically for university students in critical Indigenous studies programs. This 2nd edition takes into account relevant recent developments and includes revised versions of some of the previous chapters and some new chapters.

This book intends to add to conversations about the place of Indigenous peoples in Australian society as a means of exploring Australian society itself. The issues considered about the representations of Indigenous peoples, our knowledge and the multi-dimensionality of our intersected history are relevant to a much broader societal context.

The text does more than provide 'information'. Rather, it seeks to explore the conflict, compromise and negotiation that can emerge when previously disconnected ways of knowing ourselves are re-fashioned within a space where the 'stories' of Indigenous peoples are given authority where previously they were absent.

As such, this book is concerned with persuading pre-service teachers to develop their own ideas of what Indigenous studies means to their work, and to consider their role as teachers in this context.
