Funds of Knowledge at San Basilio de Palenque : A path for preserving its identity
Keywords:cultural identity, funds of knowledge, culturally responsive, language conservation, Palenque
This case study examines how teachers preserve and foster the funds of knowledge students bring to school in the Palenque community. Data were collected using the funds of knowledge Matrix instrument, open-ended questions, interviews, and participant observation. An analysis of data was done using a domain analysis process, a category of cultural meanings. The findings included the creation of three new categories: ethnobotany, Kuagros, and Kulum. The study identified teachers' educational practices that fit the culturally relevant/responsive profile. These involve rethinking curriculum, instruction, what funds of knowledge are and a more ethnographic approach to education.
