Language and Education Rights for Indigenous Peoples.
May, Stephen
Language, Culture and Curriculum, v11 n3 p272-96 1998
Drawing on social and political theory, this article argues that the retention and promotion of specific group-based rights--in this case, indigenous language and education rights--need not result in social and linguistic closure. Principles underlying such rights are illustrated by an extended analysis of recent Maori language-immersion initiatives in Aotearoa/New Zealand. (Author/VWL)
