Weryackwe, Suzanne, Ed.; And Others
A product of the 1982 American Indian Language Development Institute, sponsored by the Center of Indian Education and the Bilingual Education Service Center at Arizona State University, the curriculum guide reflects valuable language and cultural information of six tribal language groups (Hualapai, Havasupai, Papago, Pima, Ute, and Shoshone). Developed by respective tribal members attending the summer institute, the curriculum reflects bilingual-bicultural teaching approaches to be used with K-12 students. Designed for educators, students, community resources and schools, the guide is presented in six tribal sections. Each section introduces the tribe and language, describes the tribe's bilingual program, outlines the school's philosophy and educational goals, presents orthographical information on the tribal language (alphabet, symbols, pronunciation), and offers the language and cultural unit plan with bilingual curriculum lesson plans. Topics of units include tribal customs, poetry, childrearing, traditional games, linguistics, songs/music, foods, kinship ties, storytelling, dances, arts and crafts, and clothing. (ERB)
