Sammanfattning

Transition to distant education modality due to Covid-19 pandemic raised concerns about widening educational inequalities worldwide. This article examines Amazonian Indigenous youths’ access to upper secondary schooling in Ecuador and the resilience of the Intercultural Bilingual Education system in the face of global health emergency with other concurrent crises. The majority of students and teachers in the studied schools lack access to online education opportunities, while self-study guides proved to be a feasible way to continue studying. This study demonstrates the weak response of the state, highlights Indigenous community resilience and concludes with Indigenous visions for future education.
