Deepening the Meaning of Heritage Months.
Menkart, Deborah J.
Educational Leadership, v56 n7 p19-20 Apr 1999
Heritage month programs may actually reinforce stereotypes. When planning heritage events, schools should develop learning objectives; address values, history, and current power relationships shaping cultures; employ food and dance in context; include all Americas; portray present-day Native Americans; and examine overall school curriculum and policies.
