Abstract How teachers teach science is based upon their understanding of the nature of science and their beliefs about teaching and learning. This study investigated one science teacher’s beliefs and practices when teaching science to Indigenous students. The research was designed as a case study (Creswell, 1998) framed in a self-study research methodology (Loughran, 2004). A teacher knowledge filter (Keys, 2007) provided the framework to analyse the teacher’s beliefs and practices. The findings challenge current classroom practice, and have implications for teaching Indigenous students across other curriculum areas.
