Of Metaphors and Learning: Navajo Teachings for Today's Youth.
McPherson, Robert S.
American Indian Quarterly, v22 n4 p457-68 Fall 1998
Metaphorical teachings derived from objects and observations of daily life may provide a way to bridge the gap between the deeply religious values at the center of life for Navajo elders and the mechanized, fast-paced world of Navajo youth who find traditional teachings confusing or irrelevant. Examples of such teachings are provided. (SV)
