The role of Native American teachers and administrators working in reservation schools has received very little attention, although their work is critical to preparing their students for the future. Utilizing numerous interviews and extensive fieldwork, Terry Huffman shows how they define their roles and evaluate their performance. He examines how they address the complex issues of Native cultural identity that affect their students and themselves and how they cope with the pressures of teaching disadvantaged students while meeting the requirements for reservation schools, including the No Child Left Behind Act.

Personal accounts, including candid comments about their choice of profession and the sometimes harsh realities of reservation life, offer unique insight into the frustrations and rewards of providing a viable education for Native American students. American Indian Educators in Reservation Schools demonstrates that these teachers and administrators meet daunting challenges with persistent optimism. Huffman's study will help educators in other communities whose students are navigating a difficult path out of poverty and discrimination toward a better future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Huffman's interviews and comprehensive review of the literature on Indian education highlight the effects of pervasive poverty on Indian students." --Choice
"To my knowledge, no one has tackled this subject to the depth that Huffman has done. I consider this book an immense contribution to the sociology of education and to American Indian studies." ---MaryJo Benton Lee, author of Ethnicity Matters: Rethinking How Black, Hispanic, and Indian Students Prepare for and Succeed in College
"This book is a must-read for all educators across Indian Country and would certainly benefit pre-service teachers, particularly those who are being trained at tribal colleges." --Tribal College Journal--Tribal College Journal
"American Indian Educators is a strong addition to education and Native studies collections. . ." --The Midwest Book Review--The Midwest Book Review
