Brotherhood Through Education: A Guide for Teachers of American Indians.
Powers, Joseph F.
A guide for educators planning to work with American Indian children, the book presents factual material to enable the reader to better understand Indian life styles. The book is divided into 2 sections. The first section discusses culture, language, and the socioeconomic patterns of Indians compared to non-Indians. The second section covers Indian education, curriculum, and techniques for motivation. Also included are 19 suggestions for developing a more tolerant attitude toward ethnic groups. Three examples are: (1) avoid making value judgments; (2) learn about the culture of the people; and (3) don't pry. There are certain areas in the life of a people that are sacred. In addition, there are 4 appendixes: (1) source materials; (2) elements of English; (3) statistical measurements; and (4) fatalism index. A bibliography for clarification and elaboration ends the text. (FF)
