Native Education Resources for the Southwest Region.
Fuentes, Nancy, Comp.
A companion to a 1997 national directory, this southwestern regional directory focuses on resources for educators of K-12 American Indian students in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Organized by subject or type of resources available, each entry lists the name of the organization or project, contact information, and a brief description. The resources in the languages and language education section are general and not specific to particular languages or tribes. The section on art, culture, heritage, and history includes museums and similar institutions. Youth fellowship resources include programs for American Indian students as well as other ethnic groups, programs that are tribe-specific, and some that are national and international in scope. Resources in the training, technical assistance, information, and support section include services targeted specifically to American Indians students and those that address all culturally and linguistically diverse students. State-focused resources provide services that cut across resource categories. The section on periodicals and publications presents 15 journals and monographs, as well as 15 publishers and distributors that offer books, curriculum materials, audiotapes, videos, and other audiovisual materials. Appendices list the tribes in each of the five states, with contact information, and give population figures for Native Americans in the five-state region. Contains an index. (TD)
