Indian Education Confronts the Seventies. Five Volumes, Volume V: Future Concerns.
Deloria, Vine, Jr., Ed.
As the fifth volume in a five-volume series of position papers on Indian education, this publication presents six papers relative to future concerns in Indian education. Papers are titled as follows: (1) "Bilingual and Bicultural Education for American Indians" (revitalization of Indian "life" principles via bilingual/bicultural education is proposed as a key to future Indian education); (2) "Indian Community Colleges" (the potential of reservation based community colleges is discussed in terms of total community development); (3) "The Need for Education Programs for American Indians in Prison" (a review of the initial success and ultimate failure of the San Quentin educational program is used to make a plea for Indian oriented prison education); (4) "New Potentials for Modern Indian Economic Development" (utilizing modern techniques and traditional Indian ideologies, a case is made for developing reservation economies centered on food production and energy conservation); (5) "Education and the Urban Indian" (specific urban problems are identified and suggestions are made for improving urban Indian education); (6) "Long and Short Range Goals for Indian Education" (differentiating between goals and objectives, a framework for developing long range goals and short range objectives is presented).
