Abstract: The vast majority of Indigenous peoples in the world today remain committed to their languages, their cultures, and their futures as distinct peoples. Many struggle for recognition and for equity in law, health, education, economic participation, and social justice. They often face challenges of racism, discrimination, and socioeconomic marginalization. For Indigenous people, vocational education and training is often a vital path to the future, promising not just access to employment and income, but also a means to new insights, knowledge, and ultimately greater participation in the wider society.
