Navajo Reading Study. Progress Report No. 4, December 1969.
Murphy, Paul, Ed.
A summary of the discussions of the Navajo Reading Study Conference, held on December 4-5, 1969, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was presented in this report. A group of consultants met to discuss the collection of data and its analysis for a study on Navajo reading materials and the language of 6-year-old Navajo children. The consultants included Mr. Kenneth Begishe, Shonto, Northwestern University; Professor Garland Bills, The University of New Mexico; Professor Kenneth Hale, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Mr. William Morgan, Sr., Navajo Community College; Mr. Paul Platero, Navajo Community College; Professor Bruce Rigsby, The University of New Mexico; Professor Oswald Werner, Northwestern University; Mr. Robert Young, Bureau of Indian Affairs; and Mr. Bernard Spolsky, Director of Navajo Reading Project. The consultants pointed out the inadequacies of a freely collected sample, the probable need for careful eliciting of appropriate words and forms, and the strategies to be followed in further developments of this study.
