    Abstract

    We have known for some time how difficult it is for students to learn about people apart from themselves, and for teachers to teach about anything other than from their own background. This impossibility to learn and to teach outside the self is usually explained in terms of structure, but this research repositions the dilemma in relation to desire in speech. It finds that the preservice teachers involved in this study want to see in themselves what they see in Indigenous people. The consequences of this for teaching are manifold.
