Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: Education among American Indians has lagged behind that of almost all other groups in both the United States and Canada, and it generally has not offered what Indian communities need. It is this disturbing state of affairs - along with the intractable realities, unexamined assumptions, and cultural conflicts and misunderstandings behind it - that Science and Native American Communities confronts. Representing an unprecedented gathering of Native American professionals working in the sciences and advanced technology, the book combines theory and practice, firsthand experience and strategic thinking, in a provocative exploration of the uneasy meeting ground between science and Native American communities. In highly personal, deeply informed, and frequently moving essays, the authors wrestle with a legacy of mistrust and violence. Acknowledging that the science and technology of nation-states have been used to eradicate, suppress, and rob Native peoples, they ask: Is a common ground between science and Native America possible? The problems and prospects that emerge from such a meeting, and that these essays address, include the impact of science and technology on Native lands and environment; ongoing economic and technological opportunities and challenges for reservation communities; and the differences and similarities between Native and scientific thought and practice. Coming from perspectives in government, industry, and research, the authors not only showcase different reactions to the consequences of science, but also energetically propose strategies for renegotiating Native communities' relationships with science, seizing control of their destinies, and moving forward in the twenty-first century. Keith James is associate professor of social and organisational psychology at Colorado State University and a member of the Onondaga community.

Rezension: "The authors (nearly all Native Americans) do not downplay the ways in which mainstream science has been used (or abused) to oppress or obliterate native peoples, and no unified approach emerges; nevertheless, the essays collectively convey a sense of the value of a creative synthesis of superficially incompatible traditions."--"Choice"
