From Native North American Oral Traditions to Western Literacy: Storytelling in Education.
Piquemal, Nathalie
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v49 n2 p113-22 Sum 2003
Native Americans have oral traditions that are distinct from the European literacy consciousness, having different modes of discourse, different kinds of metaphorical thinking, and different conceptions of teaching as storytelling. Storytelling is important in children's education, but to be effective and respectful of Native culture, school curricula would have to incorporate Native orality consciousness.
