Formal Education and Culture Change, A Modern Apache Indian Community and Government Education Programs.
Parmee, Edward A.
The study critically examines conditions on the San Carlos Apache Reservation that have resulted from outside manipulation done without regard for the traditional heritage of the Apaches or without provision of training for the Apaches in understanding and facilitating change. The effects of educational experiences available to the Apaches are studied, and an attempt is made to determine the factors contributing to the relative lack of Indian participation in formal educational opportunities. It is concluded that until a stable economy is secured on the reservation, the San Carlos Apaches will continue to be reluctant to take advantage of educational opportunities or to enter into responsible community life.
