Based on Indigenous education research in Canada, the U.S., and Peru, small Indigenous school founders and educators reveal visions and tensions emerging through commitment to community-based Indigenous schooling. Major themes encompass connections to histories, relationships with the environment, and navigation of local and state pressures. Anchoring each school are efforts to protect Indigenous lands and cultural practices, and the article asserts that small Indigenous schools are vital representations of resurgence in and beyond Indigenous communities.
