            Rethinking the concepts of citizenship and community in relation to young children, this groundbreaking text examines how indigenous understandings and practices applied in early childhood settings in Australia and New Zealand, encourage young children to demonstrate their care a...nd concern for others and perceive themselves as part of a larger community. Young Children's Community Building in Action acknowledges global variations in the meanings of early childhood education, of citizenship and community building, and challenges widespread invisibility and disregard of Indigenous communities. Through close observation and examination of a range of early years settings in Australia and New Zealand, chapters demonstrate how practices guided by Aboriginal and Maori values support and nurture children's personal and social development as indivduals, and as citizens in a wider community. Exploring what young children's citizenship learning and action looks like in practice, and how this may vary within and across communities, the book provides a powerful account of effective pedagogical approaches which have been long-excluded from mainstream dialogues. Written for researchers and students of Early Childhood Education and Care, this book provides insight into what citizenship can be for young children, and how Indigenous cultural values shape ways of knowing, being, doing and relating.

            It's 1837, and immigrating to a small New Zealand fishing village is an opportunity for Ida Lange's family to build a better future. Yet for Ida, raised in a strict, religious, tight-knit German community, so much is still forbidden to a woman. Yearning for the poor day labourer ...she shared books with as a child, Ida is now trapped in a dire marriage to a man of her father's choosing. For Cat, who came of age in New Zealand under brutal conditions, life in the colonies hasn't been easy. Through a strange turn of events, she is adopted by a native Maori tribe and she begins to thrive. But when she challenges the traditions of her tribe, she's banished, and left once again to rely on the only person she can trust with her future: herself. When fate brings Ida and Cat together, they recognise in each other a kindred spirit. Out of common ground grows an enduring friendship that will not be broken by the hardships of the plains, threats from the past, or the trials of family and heartache. What they'll discover is the depth of their own strength and resilience as they get nearer to the freedom they desire and demand. And their journey is just beginning.

            Mark Twain among the Indians and Other Indigenous Peoples
               

            Mark Twain among the Indians and Other Indigenous Peoples (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Mark Twain among the Indians and Other Indigenous Peoples is the first book-length study of the writer's evolving views regarding the aboriginal inhabitants of North America and the Southern Hemisphere, and his deeply conflicted representations of them in fiction, newspaper sketc...hes, and speeches. Using a wide range of archival materials-including previously unexamined marginalia in books from Clemens's personal library-Driscoll charts the development of the writer's ethnocentric attitudes about Indians and savagery in relation to the various geographic and social milieus of communities he inhabited at key periods in his life, from antebellum Hannibal, Missouri, and the Sierra Nevada mining camps of the 1860s to the progressive urban enclave of Hartford's Nook Farm. The book also examines the impact of Clemens's 1895-96 world lecture tour, when he traveled to Australia and New Zealand and learned firsthand about the dispossession and mistreatment of native peoples under British colonial rule. This groundbreaking work of cultural studies offers fresh readings of canonical texts such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Roughing It, and Following the Equator, as well as a number of Twain's shorter works.
