Nurturing and Validating Indigenous Epistemologies in Higher Education: Comment on "Domestication of the Ivory Tower."
Romero, Mary Eunice
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v33 n2 p250-254 Jun 2002
Responds to a paper that focused on the "domestication of the ivory tower" and that highlighted indigenous, field-based education associated with higher education institutions in Alaska. Shares two stories that illustrate what indigenous students often encounter in higher education, places of learning that frequently devalue or ignore their world views, intellectualization, and life experiences.
