"Curricula in Indian schools": R5-231/1983-4E-PDF

"The literature on the education of native Canadians is dominated by one recurrent theme: the Indian child lives in two worlds. There is, on the one hand, the traditional way of life, with its history, culture and values. On the other hand, there is the larger world of non-native Canada, with its own distinctive patterns and values. For the Indian child, school is the place where the two worlds meet. The challenge for educators is to bridge these two worlds without compromising the integrity of either."--Historical Trends in Indian Education.
