Smolkin, Laura B.; Suina, Joseph H.
New Advocate, v10 n4 p307-22 Fall 1997
Explores the responses of a range of adults (all five Pueblo Indians) to one children's book, "Arrow to the Sun," based on a Pueblo Indian tale and written by a non-Indian. Discusses concerns for accuracy, authenticity, and sensitivity. Finds widely differing responses to the book among Eastern and Western Pueblo members. Reconsiders pedagogies, censorship, and solutions. (SR)
