ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION IN THE INDIGENOUS SCHOOLS OF BRASIL

Edson Damas da Silveira, Serguei Aily Franco de Camargo

Resumo


The environmental education applied within indigenous schools, flowing from categories of fundamental rights overseen in the current Brazilian Constitution, deserves a great deal of reflection and attention by Brazilian educators. Besides promoting the specific elements proper to schools, they should be aware of the root principle of an environmental education shared by indigenous peoples, being the grounds for other equally relevant sub-principles which demand the involvement of the whole community: the promotion of interculturality, transversality and flexible approaches to environmental education in indigenous schools’ syllabuses, undertaken by children and young natives who require a methodology which is more tuned to their social dynamic and, above all, linked to the natural world. This quality of environmental education upholds a view of the sentiment of fraternity, which we should share equally with present and future generations.
