Power and Place Indian Education in America by authors Vine Deloria Jr. and Daniel R. Wildcat
We are proud to introduce our new Book of the Month! For centuries, education for Native Americans for centuries has been ineffective in many ways. The Bureau of Indian education has made attempts to revamp Native American learning and school systems. Part of the issue is the idea of being taught an European view of what Native history is. The education system is broken and has to be addressed properly. Through their book "Power and Place Indian Education in America", authors Vine Deloria Jr. And Daniel R. Wildcat address the difficulties faced by Native American students throughout their school years. This short novel gives a philosophical, practical, and visionary account of Native experiences through shared letters. These letters were written by educators, students, and community leaders.
