McCarty, Teresa L.
Bilingual Research Journal, v17 n1-2 p13-34 Win-Spr 1993
In the past 25 years, both content and context of American Indian education have changed tremendously, largely due to a dynamic interplay between federal language policy and initiatives generated by Indian schools and communities. This paper integrates a historical analysis of federal language policy with comparative ethnographic data from Indian bilingual programs in the Southwest. Contains 47 references. (Author/TD)
