Literature that Transcends Cultural Differences.
Dunkley, Grace; And Others
The goal of the Navajo people is to have more voice in the curriculum development in their own communities. Interest is in values based on nature and human understanding rather than control, competition, and materialism. Taken from the workshop recordings of the 15th Annual Indian Education Conference, this discussion centers on literature which transcends cultural differences. The participants discuss the views of school board members on the Navajo Reservation regarding the books and materials used with Indian children in their boarding schools. Several examples of children's and adolescents' literature, suitable for all young readers regardless of cultural background, are reviewed. (NQ)
