This article seeks to contribute to the link between critical peace education and Indigenous education from an Indigenous international and comparative education perspective. The article first reviews the marginalization of critical peace education and Indigenous education. By bringing forward areas of common interest between peace education and Indigenous education, the need for specific strategies involving mutual exchange and resulting in co-construction of education using both approaches is emphasized. Although peace education is not widely discussed in Indigenous or American Indian education, this article proposes a conversation between Indigenous community members, scholars, educators and other stakeholders in order to encourage collaboration towards the shared goal of education for the purposes of social transformation.
