Contemporary Issues Reader One: A Humanistic View of Diversity and Commonality in the Tribal and American Indian Community.
Beck, David, Ed.
This volume is a collection of articles by American Indian educators, counselors, and administrators who seek to record the transformation of oral traditions into literate through the use of the written word. A variety of topics are discussed within broad frameworks, from the humanities to the highly technical. "Indian Learners and Public Education Policy" (D. Beaulieu) addresses issues and options by examining the roles of public agencies and tribal governments. "The Tribal Community and an Academic Philosophy" (R. V. Dumont, Jr.) examines curricular models. "History and Indian Leadership" (W. E. LaMere) discusses Indian values, identity, and treatment to trace management problems. "Tradition in a Contemporary Setting: Sentimentality or Spirituality" (E. Savilla) juxtaposes negative and positive viewpoints of traditional beliefs and practices. "Corporate Formation and Organizational Development in the Boys Club" (R. G. Archiquette) presents an historical perspective of the Boys Club of Oneida, Inc. "Theoretical Complexities of Urban Indian Education" (L. Delgado) examines community needs vs. public school policy. A review of the novel "Ceremony" by Leslie M. Silko praises its contribution to an understanding of Pueblo Indian legends and rituals. (MM)
