Spirituality and Curriculum: A Native American View.
JCT: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Curriculum Studies, v11 n2 p39-48 1995
Shares the personal feelings of a Navajo woman who, as a child, had to squeeze her spirituality (which permeated all she did) into the inflexible, stifling mainstream curriculum. This education had little to do with justice, peace, and aliveness and had no connection with the spirit she brought from home. (SM)
