Through a Critical Lens: Native American Alienation from Higher Education.
Taylor, Janis Swenson
This paper is an analysis of Native American student alienation on a predominantly White university campus viewed through the lens of Critical Race Theory. It uses the narratives of 16 students in a qualitative study to question the assumption that minority student alienation is the result of a failure to adjust, adapt, integrate, and become involved with the traditional college setting. It suggests, in contrast, that certain aspects of university environments create and support forces that alienate. It recommends a broader, more inclusive curriculum and pedagogy, and urges higher education to listen to the voices of these students and to envision and create a new higher education culture that will provide support and services and an education relevant to their needs.
