New Word- "Indigegogy"

I coined a new word today, for my class at SKC called "Introduction to Indigenous Science." Yes, the word is Indigegogy. The etymology is the art or science of learning to or becoming indigenous. From this Site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedagogy
where terms like andragogy are also explained, which is the art or science of teaching adults. You are also probably most familiar with the word pedagogy, which is the same art or science, yet relating to children. Yep, children. why is it called pedagogy if we are not children? Do children learn the same as adults? I tend to think not in the same way. Tell me what you think, please.
