Murphy, Gypsy - Red Power-Red Pedagogy

Red Power-Red Pedagogy
Gypsy Murphy (Visiting Scholar in Native American Studies):
The field of Native American Studies was born of the social protest movement of the
1960's. With "Red Power" as the rallying cry for Indigenous visibility, colleges and
universities began to offer classes that illuminated Indigenous worldviews and ways of
knowing. More than merely calling for the inclusion of Indigenous literary, historical and
cultural studies on college campuses, it frames Indigenous experience using Indigenous
pedagogical tools or "Red Pedagogy".
