This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book is about the most foundational ideas in Indigenous and decolonizing studies in education. It is an artful engagement of colonial incommensurabilities and decolonial embodiment through the connections between horse, rider, and land. The book offers important frameworks about reading, teaching, and writing from an emplaced perspective that is based on classroom practices by Sandra Styres. It argues that existing policy has not accounted for the dynamic ways that community ideologies of disability are shaped and reshaped. The book describes the history, context, and specific efforts to restore the fishery. It considers how disability policy in Samoa is formed at the collisions of multiple ideological and cultural conceptualizations of disability. The book also offers a critical framework for addressing (de)militarization in Indigenous and decolonizing studies in education.
