Value Orientation - A Strategy for Removing Barriers.
Ross, Allen Chuck; Brave Eagle, Dorothy
Designed for use in curriculum development, this value orientation packet addresses the cultural value orientations of American Indians (specifically, the Lakota on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota) and those of mainstream society in an effort to help individuals understand that values differ from culture to culture. Specifically, this packet includes the following: (1) a list comparing the value orientations of the Lakota with those of mainstream society (bravery; generosity; economics; fortitude; wisdom; competition; materialism; compassion; wealth; time; age; religion; education; medicine; sexology; diet; nature; family; child discipline; trust); (2) a value orientation diagram involving correlations between value orientations and activities which: cost more than a dollar; involve competition; are done with the family; utilize classroom knowledge; are done as a leader; involve Native religion; are intellectual; require private ownership; are physical; involve giving or sharing; reflect parental orientation; are time oriented; increase self-respect; help others; and require individual courage; (3) directions for using the value orientation diagram; (4) directions for making group comparisons.
