Proceedings: National Indian Bilingual Education Conference (1st, Albuquerque, N.M., April 17-19, 1973). Curriculum Bulletin No. 15.
This conference report was a finale to the first National Indian Bilingual Education Conference (NIBEC) and a prelude to the second. The first conference was inspired in part by a 1972 meeting called by the U.S. Office of Education in Denver for participants in the Indian Title VII programs. The report covers the first NIBEC held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1973, and presents a prologue to the second NIBEC to be held in Billings, Montana, May 6-9, 1974. The 5 conference topics included in the proceedings are: bilingual classroom strategies, bilingual staff development, community participation, bilingual program administration, and bilingual materials development. Though the styles of these 5 articles differ greatly, they all emanate from the same resources, the recorded tapes of all the 1973 NIBEC sessions. It is hoped that the recording of the 1973 ideas will help NIBEC 1974 in maintaining this valuable dialogue among Indian educators. The NIBEC Declaration, a list of current Indian bilingual projects, and registered NIBEC members were also given. (FF)
