UCLA Community College Bibliography: Tribal Colleges--The Path to Self-Determination
Ruiz, Eddy A.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n1 p60-67 Jan 2008
This bibliography explores tribally controlled colleges, an area of research that is often neglected by mainstream academia. Unlike other American minorities, Native Americans make up sovereign nations. American Indian tribal members retain their rights to land and self-government, and since 1924 they hold dual citizenship in their Native communities and the United States. The referenced articles, dissertations, and reports provide historical, qualitative, quantitative, and case study evidence pertaining to the triumphs and struggles of American Indians in higher education beginning in 1968 with the creation of Navajo Community College--now Dine' College--the first formal tribally controlled higher education institution.
