A Natural Education: Native American Ideas and Thoughts.
Padilla, Stan, Comp.
This pamphlet presents quotes of Native American elders concerning Native philosophy and way of life. This advice is intended to transmit Native American thoughts on how to live a good life and to address the essence of a natural education. Originally prepared for Native American young people, this pamphlet is now being offered to all people, especially those who have become disconnected from their mother cultures. The quotes reveal the importance of teaching children about themselves, about moral values, about respecting nature, and about the role of spirituality. (LP)
