Dr Si Belkacem TAIEB, Decolonizing Indigenous Education: An Amazigh-Berber Ethnographic journey, (Palgrave MacMillan : New York) 2014

In this work exploring the Kabyle people of Algeria and their educational journeys, Si Belkacem Taieb explores an epistemological and ontological framework for Kabyle education. He does so by undertaking a narrative inquiry: an auto-ethnographic journey, in which the journey of one's self and the journey of one's people are inextricably intertwined.In a postcolonial cultural journey in an indigenous, North African Kabyle landscape and the development of an Amazigh educational philosophy, Taieb writes the sociological foundations of an Amazigh educational system: one that removes Amazigh education from its colonial heritage and restores it to the people who create and use it.
