Unlearning the language of conquest : scholars expose anti-Indianism in America : deceptions that influence war and peace, civil liberties, public education, religion and spirituality, democratic ideals, the environment, law, literature, film, and happiness by Donald Trent Jacobs( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation "Outstanding scholarship. ... Giant first steps towards the goal of providing a truthful and constructive understanding of indigenous worldviews."--Daniel R. Wildcat, Professor of Sociology and American Indian Studies, Haskell Indian Nations University Responding to anti-Indianism in America, the wide-ranging perspectives culled in Unlearning the Language of Conquest present a provocative account of the contemporary hegemony still at work today, whether conscious or unconscious. Four Arrows has gathered a rich collection of voices and topics, including: Waziyatawin Angela Cavender Wilson's "Burning Down the House: Laura Ingalls Wilder and American Colonialism," which probes the mentality of hatred woven within the pages of this iconographic children's literature. Vine Deloria's "Conquest Masquerading as Law," examining the effect of anti-Indian prejudice on decisions in U.S. federal law. David N. Gibb's "The Question of Whitewashing in American History and Social Science," featuring a candid discussion of the spurious relationship between sources of academic funding and the types of research allowed or discouraged. Barbara Alice Mann's "Where Are Your Women? Missing in Action," displaying the exclusion of Native American women in curricula that purport to illuminate the history of Indigenous Peoples. Bringing to light crucial information and perspectives on an aspect of humanity that pervades not only U.S. history but also current sustainability, sociology, and the ability to craft accurate understandings of the population as a whole, Unlearning the Language of Conquest yields a liberating new lexis for realistic dialogues

Sexual forensics : lust, passion, and psychopathic killers by Donald Trent Jacobs( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides a fascinating examination of "neurotruths" that are relevant and applicable to 21st-century parenting and social relationships, and explains workplace "brainmarks" that enable predictive solutions to practical problems. Author Don Jacobs, a researcher who has been studying psychopathy for over 25 years, describes how psychopathy has evolved as a brain condition, documenting how the vast majority of the spectrum represents normalcy, and only 20 to 30 percent of humankind characterizes corruptors or violent, pathological individuals. The book examines examples of individuals who have demonstrated significant achievement, influence, wealth, or corruptive behavior in differently abled profiles, and provides student autobiographies that enable rare scientific insights into the adolescent state of mind

Teaching truly : a curriculum to indigenize mainstream education( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time in educational publishing, Teaching Truly offers K-16 teachers course-specific guidelines for indigenizing mainstream education. The goal is to facilitate greater educational integrity and relevance in the classroom now, without waiting for more «reforms» to policy, standards or curricula in general. Incorporating reality-based teaching common in traditional Indigenous learning cultures, each chapter first exposes educational hegemony, including that existing within the new «common core standards», and then offers alternative, time-tested perspectives and exercises to counter and/or counter-balance such hegemony. Addressing eight common subject areas, the material can be adapted for different grade levels and can be applied to other mainstream courses."--Publisher's website

Differing worldviews in higher education : two scholars argue cooperatively about justice education by Donald Trent Jacobs( Book )

15 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two noted professors on opposite sides of the cultural wars come together and engage in "cooperative argumentation." One, a "Jewish, atheist libertarian" and the other a "mixed blood American Indian" bring to the table two radically different worldviews to bear on the role of colleges and universities in studying social and ecological justice. The result is an entertaining and enlightening journey that reveals surprising connections and previously misunderstood rationales that may be at the root of a world too polarized to function sanely."--Publisher's website
Primal awareness by Donald Trent Jacobs( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During a kayaking expedition in 1983, the author was sucked into an underwater tunnel in Mexico's Rio Urique. He miraculously emerged unharmed, but this near-death experience awakened in him a primal awareness that had been coddled to sleep by his so-called civilized perceptions. He gained intuitive insights from this awakening that enabled him to communicate "heart-to-heart" with wild horses, trauma victims, and troubled teenagers. Fourteen years later he returned to Mexico and stayed with the Raramuri Indians, learning more about this primal awareness from a 100-year-old shaman. These experiences helped him develop a model of how the human mind learns. The model is represented by the mnemonic CAT-FAWN--Concentration Activated Transformation, which is activated by Fear, Authority, Words, and Nature. The concepts represented by the cat-fawn connection offer Western minds a paradigm for understanding subjective experience, rather than for measuring objective reality. They symbolize the associations that have patterned the thinking styles of many indigenous people, especially Native Americans. Primal people offer a living model for rediscovering our own innate primal awareness. A partnership between Western and indigenous thinking can bring the natural world back into our lives and help us regain our primal awareness. Indigenous educational theories can bring balance to learning, which now places too much emphasis on conformity to authority, words, and fear. (Contains 178 references, notes, a glossary, an index, and photographs.) (Td)
