The Cultural Impact In Native American Education.
East, Cynthia Ellen
The main part of the study examines literature concerning Native American education in the United States, with most studies pertaining to the Navajo tribe; however, Canadian studies are also included. The first section, following the introductory material, is an annotated bibliography of materials developed between 1955 and 1981 which address the following: history and progress of Native American education (14 citations); cultural and learning differences that hinder the Native American student (27 citations); and new ideas for Native American education (29 citations). The summary encompasses cultural differences that affect educational progress, teacher education programs which emphasize cultural awareness, government role in Indian education, and programs that are currently addressing these problems. A conclusion discussing the impact of the Self-Determination Act and the Indian Education Act; a 72-item bibliography addressing Native American education; and an appendix containing a chronology of pivotal dates in Indian education (1568-1975), tips for teachers, tips for Anglos, and Indian agencies, conclude the document.
