Linda Tuhiwai Smith interprets the conference theme “To Know Is Not Enough” and reviews “what we know” about researching indigenous education. She provides insights about the politics, policies, and practicalities of applying available knowledge to indigenous learning contexts. The talk draws from diverse research projects that have explored indigenous knowledge, cultural revitalization, research methodologies, activism, and the search for well-being within and beyond the education context.
