The 22-page paper consists of information that helps in defining how Indigenous education has been influenced by four fundamentally different concepts of community. The author's paper cites David Corson to say that 'although the point of community education is sometimes to question taken-for-granted structures that oppress people, it usually leaves these structures in place'. We think Indigenous Education and the Ecology of Community is well suited to work towards a redefinition of Indian education.
It is interesting to note that the author of this paper has no background in any Aboriginal culture, neither a practising educator, nor tied closely to a community in the traditional sense of the word, which under our understanding, makes his reflections more objective.
