Subverting the Captor's Language: Teaching Native Science to Students of Western Science.
Faye, Jefferson
American Indian Quarterly, v25 n2 p270-73 Spr 2001
An American Indian professor describes how he uses Western science metaphors in his freshman science writing course to help students realize that Western science is only one worldview based on cultural assumptions. Gradually, he introduces Native concepts of science including the interconnectedness of all things, responsibility to the community, and consideration of current decisions' effects on future generations.
