Author Gregory A. Cajete of the Santa Clara Pueblo, shares concepts that have been used for thousands of years to educate Native Americans and shares his perspective on how we can integrate Native ways of learning with our own to revitalize our flagging educational system.
If you are a teacher, this book is a must! If you are a concerned citizen, this book will enlighten you about another, older way of learning. Do you have the vague sense that our educators "compartmentalize" learning and ignore the ecological and cultural contributions to our growth as intelligent human beings? Do you feel that something more could be done to prepare our people for a meaningful life? If you share some of these concerns, you may find some answers within the pages of this book.
