Traditional Indigenous Education: A Natural Process.
Armstrong, Jeannette C.
Canadian Journal of Native Education, v14 n3 p14-19 1987
Contrasts the modern definition of education (schooling) with the traditional indigenous view that focuses on education as a natural process occurring during everyday activities. Argues that traditional indigenous education ensures cultural continuity and survival of the mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being of the cultural unit and its environment. (SV)
