Bibliography of Language Arts Materials For Native North Americans: Bilingual, English as a Second Language and Native Language Materials, 1975-1976 With Supplemental Entries for 1965-1974. American Indian Bibliographic Series, No. 2.
Evans, G. Edward; Abbey, Karin
The bibliography includes 369 works, printed or reprinted in 1975 and 1976, which have been or might be used in native language education, bilingual education, or English as a Second Language education for Native North Americans. In addition, 42 items published between 1964 and 1974 are incorporated in the listing. Only English language materials whose main purpose is language instruction and all available materials written wholly or partially in Indian or Eskimo languages are included. These encompass religious tracts, transcriptions of traditional texts, and reprints of earlier works. Entries are presented alphabetically under the native language group for which they were developed. Within each native language, materials are subdivided into bilingual material (both English and the native language); materials monolingual in the native language; materials monolingual in English; and materials of which the language composition is unknown because neither the materials nor an adequate description of them was available. The notation for each entry includes as much bibliographic information as was available from the work itself and from research; in many cases, the information is less complete than one might wish. Following the specific language section is a general language section containing materials not addressed to specific native language groups. Also included are a brief review of government supported Indian education programs and a listing of colleges teaching courses in American Indian languages. (NEC)
