Community of Learning: Music Learning and Performance Practices among the Native Peoples of North America
Burton, J. Bryan
International Journal of Community Music, v3 n3 p365-370 Nov 2010
Through descriptions drawn from interviews of Native American musicians and observations of tribal musical events, this paper presents a challenge to the "conservative educational practices" in public schools of the United States. In conclusion, the paper suggests that by more closely examining different cultural learning, values and traditions, music educators might use the best elements of all cultures to forge a stronger cultural community.
