Book Review: From Bricolage to Métissage: Rethinking Intercultural Approaches to Indigenous Environmental Education and Research
Keywords:metissage, ecology, methodology, identity
AbstractGregory Lowan-Trudeau’s book From Bricolage to Métissage: Rethinking Intercultural Approaches to Indigenous Environmental Education and Research offers insights into métissage as a research methodology and explores issues of identity and ecology. His book provides a readily accessible understanding of who the Métis people in Canada are, and how taking what he calls the spirit of métissage, an approach which weaves multiple cultural perspectives together, can lead to greater and deeper understandings. This practice can also be built into teaching practices and be used to solve problems in various fields. The chapters which introduce Lowan-Trudeau’s research participants feel somewhat disjointed with the rest of the text, but provide various perspectives which will be of interest to those working in environmental education.
