Art and Culture of the American Indian, A Guide for Adult Education Leaders.
Rickards, Montana H.; And Others
Adult Basic Education for American Indians can most effectively be achieved through their art and culture. To highlight the desire of the Indian to be regarded in his own cultural setting, this document offers various ideas and expressions of noted American Indians who were participants at the 1970 ABE Institute for Teachers of American Indians held at Oregon College of Education. The material in the document was obtained by taping the responses of participants at this institute. Titles of the speeches are: Honoring the Art and Culture of the People, Montana H. Rickards; The Man in Northwest Indian Culture, William Minthorn (Black Hawk); The American Indian Woman in Tribal Life, Vivian Minthorn; Foods and Home Customs of the Northwest Indian, Vivian and William Minthorn; Trends in American Indian Education, Wallace H. Hanley; Some History of the Navajo People, and Teaching the Navajo Language, Teddy Draper; Demonstration in Navajo Weaving with a Small Loom, Lucy Draper; A Trader Looks at American Indian Arts and Crafts, William Manspeaker; The Plains Indians, The Kiowa, Spencer Sahmaunt, and The Arkansas Cherokee, Ken Owens. The document concludes with notes on the authors, a list of American Indian Museums, and a 10-page bibliography. (BP)
