In addition to Red Pedagogy: Native American Social and Political Thought (2004, 2015), she has also published several book chapters and articles includin...

In this second edition, Sandy Grande powerfully returns to her earlier theoretical arguments to further extend her original ideas in ways that beautifully contribute to both the longstanding historical struggle for liberation within indigenous communities and to a decolonizing politics that must be at the heart of all educational struggles for social justice today.
