Yaqui World View and the School: Conflict and Accommodation.
Chilcott, John H.
It is within the sphere of their socioreligious domain that Arizona Yaquis have been able to survive as a cultural group. Yet this domain, consisting of the two realms of the profane (good versus evil), and the sacred enchanted world of "huya ania," exists apart from the external world of a modern industrial society. The school, because of the nature of its power structure, cannot accommodate Yaqui youth. Therefore, nonformal and informal mechanisms of education based on the Yaqui world view and within the Yaqui community must be used to assist Yaqui youth in their accommodation to the school.
