Dayo, Dixie, Ed.
Sharing Our Pathways, v5 n1-5 2000
Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Alaska Rural Systemic Initiative (AKRSI) promotes systemic educational reform based in the culture and philosophy of the Alaska Native world view. AKRSI's first 5-year funding cycle ended in August 2000, and AKRSI was funded for a second 5 years beginning in November 2000. AKRSI activities are organized in five tracks, which rotate among Alaska's five cultural regions: Inupiaq, Athabascan, Yupik/Cupik, Aleut/Alutiiq, and Southeast regions. This document contains the five issues of Sharing Our Pathways, the AKRSI newsletter, published in 2000. Feature articles include: "Rural Alaska School Districts: Who Is in Control?" (Frank Hill); "The Time Is Right To Write" (Dorothy M. Larson); "Guidelines for Respecting Cultural Knowledge";"Identity-Creating Camps" (Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley); "Report on Native Education Summit" (Frank Hill, Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley, Ray Barnhardt, Andy Hope, Merritt Helfferich); "Cultural Standards and Test Scores" (Ray Barnhardt, Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley, Frank Hill); "Aspects of Traditional Inupiat Education" (Paul Ongtooguk); "Alaska Rural Systemic Initiative Funded for Another Five Years" (Frank Hill); "How Does the Crane Keep Its Language?" (Angayuqaq Oscar Kawagley); and "Observing Locally, Connecting Globally" (Sidney Stephens). Other articles describe related publications and resources, conferences, teacher education courses, and activities in the five cultural regions. (SV)
