The Yakama Nation of present-day Washington State has responded to more than a century of historical trauma with a resurgence of grassroots activism and cultural revitalization. This pathbreaking ethnography shifts the conversation from one of victimhood to one of ongoing resistance and resilience as a means of healing the soul wounds of settler colonialism. Yakama Rising: Indigenous Cultural Revitalization, Activism, and Healing argues that Indigenous communities themselves have the answers to the persistent social problems they face. This book contributes to discourses of Indigenous social change by articulating a Yakama decolonizing praxis that advances the premise that grassroots activism and cultural revitalization are powerful examples of decolonization. Michelle M. Jacob employs ethnographic case studies to demonstrate the tension between reclaiming traditional cultural practices and adapting to change. Through interviewees’ narratives, she carefully tacks back and forth between the atrocities of colonization and the remarkable actions of individuals committed to sustaining Yakama heritage. Focusing on three domains of Indigenous revitalization—dance, language, and foods—Jacob carefully elucidates the philosophy underlying and unifying each domain while also illustrating the importance of these practices for Indigenous self-determination, healing, and survival. In the impassioned voice of a member of the Yakama Nation, Jacob presents a volume that is at once intimate and specific to her home community and that also advances theories of Indigenous decolonization, feminism, and cultural revitalization. Jacob’s theoretical and methodological contributions make this work valuable to a range of students, academics, tribal community members, and professionals, and an essential read for anyone interested in the ways that grassroots activism can transform individual lives, communities, and society.

Die Situation der Grundschule in Deutschland ist prekär: In keinem vergleichbaren europäischen Land ist der Zusammenhang zwischen sozialer Herkunft und Bildungschancen so eng wie in Deutschland. Schon am Ende der Grundschulzeit sind die Bildungschancen weitgehend festgelegt - und zwar überwiegend in Abhängigkeit von der sozialen Herkunft der Schülerinnnen und Schüler. Das ist für die Grundschule in einer demokratisch verfassten Gesellschaft ein unerträglicher Zustand. Dieser Band beschreibt vielfältige Versuche, die Krise zu überwinden, und dokumentiert neueste Forschungsvorhaben zu diesem Thema.
