A Typology for Learning/Teaching About Native American/American Indian Social Movements.
Clifton, A. Kay
The typology is based on 2 dimensions of the ideology of each American Indian movement. One of these dimensions is the time perspective of the movement, based on its handling of time and change. Movements are distinguished according to whether they amphasize the present, past, future, or a breadth of time perspective. Movements are also distinguished by their acculturative stance, their attitude toward the dominant, white culture. Three acculturative stances are identified: (1) counteracculturative; (2) adaptive; and (3) articulatory. With the aid of the typology, historical and contemporary Indian social movements are listed, categorized and discussed briefly. An extensive bibliography accompanies each category of social movements. (Author/FF)
