9780415957359: American Indian Education: Counternarratives in Racism, Struggle, and the Law (The Critical Educator)

America Indian culture and traditions have survived an unusual amount of oppressive federal and state educational policies intended to assimilate Indian people and destroy their cultures and languages. Yet, Indian culture, traditions, and people often continue to be treated as objects in the classroom and in the curriculum. Using a critical race theory framework and a unique "counternarrative" methodology, American Indian Education explores a host of modern educational issues facing American Indian peoples―from the impact of Indian sports mascots on students and communities, to the uses and abuses of law that often never reach a courtroom, and the intergenerational impacts of American Indian education policy on Indian children today. By interweaving empirical research with accessible composite narratives, Matthew Fletcher breaches the gap between solid educational policy and the on-the-ground reality of Indian students, highlighting the challenges faced by American Indian students and paving the way for an honest discussion about solutions.

About the Author:

Matthew L.M.  Fletcher is Assistant Professor at Michigan State University College of Law and Director of the Indigenous Law and Policy Center.

Review:

"Fletcher is a gifted writer whose narrative moves briskly and engages the reader. . . This inaugural book in The Critical Educator series gives voice, the counternarrative if you will, of a population who rarely has an audience. Often ignored or subsumed by other oppressed groups or people of color, the voice of American Indians is rarely given top billing."―Review of Higher Education
