Rural School and Community Trust
After nearly two centuries of denial within Western education institutions, the indigenous knowledge systems of Alaska's Natives are being recaptured through the work of the Alaska Rural Systemic Initiative. These knowledge systems, coupled with the best of Western science, form the foundation for a new type of education--one that is place-based, culturally responsive, academically rigorous, and capable of propelling the achievement of Native children forward. (Contains 8 endnotes and 4 figures.)
