Cultural Influences in Alaskan Native Education.
Orvik, James, Ed.; Barnhardt, Ray, Ed.
These papers were originally presented at the Symposium on "Cultural Influences in Alaskan Native Education", which was held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Society for Applied Anthropology in Tucson, Arizona, April 13, 1973. The nine papers describe some of the recent efforts to better understand and build on the diverse cultural resources embodied in the people of Alaska. Topics cover: (1) a broad perspective of the prominant issues of education in Alaska; (2) some issues of teaching practices and behavior; (3) the informal aspects in the analysis of cross-cultural teaching; (4) bilingual education--a significant force in the push for greater cultural sensitivity in schools; (5) cross-cultural communication within the sphere of educational program development and the politics of educational control; and (6) a theoretical perspective analyzing the potential contributions of anthropology to cross-cultural understanding.
