Introductory Indigenous Studies in Education: Reflection and the importance of knowing is an update of the 2005 edition that was 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.
