A tortured people : the politics of colonization by Howard Adams( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Tortured People is the long awaited new title from the renowned Metis author, activist, and professor, Howard Adams. Written over a span of several years, the book emanates from experiences of life and political struggle under colonization in halfbreed and other Aboriginal communities. The book provides a unique Aboriginal socio-political perspective on the effects of colonization, while it also presents a fresh outlook on de-colonization and Aboriginal life and culture. Through indepth analysis on such topics as "The Nature of Colonization", "Eurocentricism: Myths of Aboriginal History", "Constitutional Colonization", and "Maintaining Colonization Under Neocolonialism", the book provides a sharp critical overview of the Canadian status quo and contemporary Aboriginal politics. A Tortured People also offers an explanation of the deeply rooted issues behind the dramatic increase in Aboriginal militant action in recent years"--Back cover

A model of "grass-roots" community development : the D-Q University native american language education project by Jack D Forbes( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Embodying a thoroughly grass-roots, democratic approach, the Native American Language Education (nale) Project of d-q University began operation during 1973-74. Local Native Americans are employed to work with the indigenous population in the local communities. Members of the local community are provided the time and opportunity to discuss, meet, and present their views, feelings, and opinions regarding the total language development process which occurs within their own community. The elderly people, who possess all the knowledge and wisdom of tribal language, culture, and history, are periodically contracted as professional consultants because of their tribal expertise, to correct, evaluate, and approve language materials before they are printed and distributed. In 1973-74 materials were prepared for, and disseminated to, a large audience comprised of Indian tribes across the country. Most staff effort was focused at the Papago in Arizona and the Zuni in New Mexico. By 1974-75 virtually all resources were focused at Papago and Zuni. This report includes: a summary of the historical and current situation of the Zuni and Papago peoples; discussions of the community development theory and the nale project, and of the role of self-determination in language development; a description of the nale project (background, philosophy, general objectives, and operation); and a brief discussion of the project evaluation.
