Speech Communication Education and the American Indian: Challenges and Contrasts.
Osborn, Lynn R.
The author examines the peculiarly crucial role played by spoken communication in the development and advancement of Indian cultures, with special attention to the challenges and contrasts the American Indian student presents for the speech communication educator. Three specific aspects of traditional speech communication behavior, unique to the American Indian, are discussed. These three--the tradition of Indian eloquence, comparatively superior listening and memory capacities, and silence as an integral part of communication--are suggested for consideration by the speech communication teacher whose classroom includes American Indian students.
