An elementary education resource for decolonizing government and society.
This important graphic novel is an example of how leaders can shape a society that respects Indigenous culture, while incorporating connections to western traditions. On a local scale, it preserves Maori culture and authority by giving clear instruction and ancient knowledge to newcomers from Europe. Across regions, this text presents ways to teach young people to embrace indigenous languages and concepts so that they can learn to preserve and expand ancient traditions in their own home regions.
Beyond Afrofuturism, this graphic novel offers a way to transform the foundations of western habitus to promote the kind of dignity and autonomy that was nearly destroyed over the last five centuries.
