Aldous, Myrtle, Ed.; And Others
In an effort to pool information on the working operations of Indian teacher education programs in Canada and parts of the United States, a conference on Native teacher education was held in mid-October 1973 at Saskatoon. Nine programs sent delegates, including the University of Alaska, University of Alberta, Brandon University (Manitoba), University of Calgary, Universite du Quebec a Chicoutimi, Northwest Territories, University of Saskatchewan, University of South Dakota, and Winnipeg Centre Project. Conference proceedings present in full text three opening speeches by: the Dean of Education, University of Saskatchewan on parameters of Native teacher education; a member of the National Indian Brotherhood compares Indian education in the past, present, and future; and a staff member of the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs looks at Native teacher education in Canada. Descriptions of the nine teacher education programs represented include contact people for the program, program objectives, funding sources, course descriptions, unique aspects of the program, impact on Native education, and written comments on the program from Indian student participants.
