Education of Native Americans Today.
Triplett, DeWayne R., Ed.; Ellis, Joseph R., Ed.
Thresholds in Education, v4 n2 May 1978
Various aspects of Indian education are treated in the two poems and 12 articles that constitute this issue of "Thresholds in Education." An article entitled "Indian Self-Determination and Indian Education" charts the growth of the self-determination movement, the influence of cultural pluralism, and the increasing involvement of Indians in their educational processes. "Rough Rock Demonstration School: The First Indian Contract School" tells of program design, administration, and funding difficulties encountered in a school totally controlled by its Navajo community. "Little Big Horn High School and Preschool" describes the development and implementation of urban Native American education programs in Chicago. Also included is Lyman Pierce's "Trends in Indian Education: The Views of an Urban Native American Community Leader". Three articles deal with cross cultural education in Alaska; one cites factors accounting for the success of parochial schools in meeting the educational needs of Eskimo and Indian students, the other two describe learning opportunities for native adults. Other titles include "Landmarks on the Path of Indian Education", "The Johnson O'Malley Act in the Evolution of Native American Education", "Higher Education: a New Arena for Native Americans", and "Facets of Racism and Native American Culture".
