Past and Contemporary Navajo Culture Go Hand in Hand. Curriculum Guide.
Cathey, Wallace; And Others
A course in past, present, and future Navajo culture has been developed for Navajo secondary school students. The philosophy of the course is that the Indian, regardless of his acculturation level, has the right to treasure the customs, arts, and beliefs of his ethnic group and that these cultural values should be presented in a sequential and systematic educational manner in the classroom. Objectives of the course include development of (1) an appreciation of Navajo history, cultural beliefs, and customs; (2) an understanding of the Navajo language and its structure; and (3) an appreciation for cultural art as a means of communication. A course outline is presented with suggested learning activities and instructional materials. A bibliography and a list of filmstrips with ordering information are included. (JH)
