Abstract: As is typical for an edited volume, this introductory chapter provides contextual information for the conception, theoretical grounding, and organization of the book. After a brief bibliographical overview, the co-editors offer a concise synopsis of each chapter around the three organizing questions of the book, namely, (1) what is indigenous culture and knowledge? (2) why is indigenous culture and knowledge critically important in a global society? And, (3) how to promote indigenous education in Asia. With specific examples cited from individual chapters, three thematic areas of indigenous education in Asia are highlighted for the readers, namely, cultural-competency-based framework, learning styles, and instructional strategies.
