Stokrocki, Mary; Yazzie, Elmer
Canadian Review of Art Education: Research and Issues, v24 n1 p1-18 1997
Describes, analyzes, and interprets the cultural values communicated by a Navajo art teacher in a K-12 boarding school in New Mexico. Much of the Navajo world view is expressed through content, instruction, and demonstration. This view emphasizes spirituality, harmonious living, and the process of seeing and drawing as a way of honoring and preserving relationships. (MJP)
