Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A straight-forward analysis of Indian culture and its encounter with reservation life. Without discounting the wrongs of the Government and avoiding a dead-end blaming, hopeful, concrete steps are suggested to use strong Indian values, particularly their strong spiritual outlook, to develop meaningful education programs. The American Indian can learn just as any other student. Churches can encourage Indian youth to develop his/her talents and urge the family to support youth who leave the reservation to pursue their education and not letting them give up and return home.

Deloria explains the Indian male's loss of life goals once Indians were moved to the reservation. She also explains other challenges that Indians face and suggested ways of resolving.

This is required reading for anyone planning to work on a reservation or working with Indians in our cities or towns.

This book arrived in super short time which I appreciate. It had some wrinkles in it but was well within standards of the preorder description. Very good book, too.

Speaking of Indians gives me an overview and discusses language and culture in such a way I am engaged and I can utilize this information in the diversity class I teach.
