Why Indigenous Nations Studies?
Porter, Robert; Yellow Bird, Michael
Indigenous Nations Studies Journal, v1 n1 p71-82 Spr 2000
The development of a new Indigenous Nations Studies program at the University of Kansas is described. Success depended on a critical mass of Indigenous and non-Indigenous faculty and students that had a sense of political and social justice and understood the need for institutional change. The biggest challenge was countering the entrenched academic, detached-scholar paradigm. (TD)
