College Pride, Native Pride: A Portrait of a Culturally Grounded Precollege Access Program for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian Students
Keene, Adrienne J.
Harvard Educational Review, v86 n1 p72-97 Spr 2016
In this article Adrienne J. Keene employs the portraiture methodology to explore the story of College Horizons. She examines this precollege access program for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian students to understand how a program rooted in Native cultures and identities can not only provide a space to create knowledge surrounding the college application process but also create a college-bound Native identity. The motto of the program, "College Pride, Native Pride" embodies a duality that emerges through the program itself.
