Summary Reflecting and building upon his time teaching on an Athabascan Indian reservation in Alaska, Brown (writing, U. of Tampa) attempts to incorporate his experience and the theories of Freire and other critical pedagogists into a work which recommends a resistance pedagogy for colonized and oppressed peoples. He relates his own transformation from a unwitting tool of the colonizer to someone who learned from his students what works in engaging "border" students education, throughout relating the material to current theoretical radical pedagogy.
