Semchison, Michael Red Shirt
Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, v29 n2 p8-10 2001

He observed that initially many students were hindered by their past experience with linear paradigms of structured academic processes. Eventually they let their minds access spirit and feeling in addition to thought, allowing a recall of life experiences and the knowledge gained from them. (TD)
