Anderson, Ned; Chilcott, John H.
In one phase of the National Study of American Indian Education, local Indian communities were encouraged to conduct their own self-studies of American Indian education. In keeping with this, a conference was held to determine the attitudinal responses of White Mountain Apaches (aged 20-48) to the following general topics concerning Indian education on their reservation: (1) the role of formal education in Apache society, (2) preparation for life off the reservation, (3) child-raising practices among the Apaches, (4) Apache children in school, (5) the need for communication skills, (6) the Apache college student, (7) absenteeism among Apache students, (8) comparing schools serving Apache children, (9) teachers of Apache children, (10) administration of the schools, (11) legal aspects of education, and (12) vocational education. The document provides a translation of the conference proceedings, along with recommendations and a summary. (LS)
