Reflecting on the Past: Some Important Aspects of Indian Education To Consider as We Look toward the Future.
Tippeconnic, John W., III
Journal of American Indian Education, v39 n2 p39-48 2000
Discusses American Indian education in four critical areas: tribal control, focus and priority, language and culture, and research. These areas are complex and political due to treaty rights; sovereignty; and relationships between Indian tribes and federal, state, and local governments. Unity among Indians and making Indian education a priority at all levels are essential for continued progress. (TD)
