This book provides information about the importance of teaching American Indian students by bridging home and schools, using students' cultural capital as a springboard for academic success. Culturally Responsive Pedagogy is explored from its earliest beginnings following the 1928 Meriam Report. Successful education of Native students depends on all involved and respect for the voices of American Indians in calling for education that holds high expectations for native students and allows them to be grounded in their cultures and languages.

The importance of knowledge about our educational and cultural history is critical in this time of increasing diversity in the United States. The depth of the study and the rigor of thought in this volume is impressive and the use of the volume by teachers, teacher educators, and policy makers will be a benefit to all children and their families. The role of the American Indian population in our self-examination and reflection is critical. -- Ann Converse Shelly, executive secretary of the World Federation of Associations for Teacher Education; professor emerita, Ashland University
The authors offer an enlightened portrait of Native American history as the dynamic and disruptive context for persistent culture conflict. Promising educational practices are documented as models for Native societies, whose heritages must now inform their own schooling, teacher development and cultural evolution. -- J. Francisco Hidalgo, PhD, former dean of education, USC, San Jose State University & New Mexico Highlands University
This book addresses issues and concerns regarding Indian Education in a way that has not been previously addressed. There is much concern about Indian Education and the chapters provide insight to strategies and other teaching practices that work with Native American students and their families.An excellent resource for both pre-service and in-service teacher educators working in schools that serving Native American students, and others, because it reinforces the importance of establishing positive relationships with students and families and using students' prior learning experiences to enhance formal academic successes. -- Ramona Klein, EdD Turtle Mountain Chippewa, Education Specialist, Eagle Consulting, Inc., North Dakota
Standing Together: American Indian Education as Culturally Responsive Pedagogy is an excellent balanced collection that explores the continuing ineffectiveness of past and re-emerging assimilationist approaches to American Indian education in an era of standardization and accountability. Representing the works of many emerging and established scholars it is an important defense for culturally based education strategies that build upon the strengths of American Indian learners and their communities. -- David Beaulieu, PhD Minnesota Chippewa, White Earth Reservation, Professor/Director Electa Quinney Institute for American Indian Education
