His research focuses on Indigenous Education and teacher education, with a focus on supporting teachers to be effective when working with diverse Indigenous populations, through cultural awareness, critical pedagogy practices, and culturally responsive pedagogy. Muñoz has spent the past decade developing skills for this work by using methods that include Indigenous Circle Work, the Theatre of the Oppressed, various forms of art, dialogue and literacy tools. He also consults with schools internationally, working on anti-racist education,

cultural competency and culturally responsive approaches in the U.S., Germany, Israel and Mexico.
