    Not just an important lesson on the insights of Indian education, but this volume likewise serves as an invaluable resource and challenge for educators and leaders from all traditions. Deloria and Wildcat propose that another way is indeed possible and that if we attempt to judge our present "progress" based on the past few centuries, we ought to seriously consider rethinking the very nature of education altogether. The discussions surrounding the metaphysics of American Indians versus the West Not just an important lesson on the insights of Indian education, but this volume likewise serves as an invaluable resource and challenge for educators and leaders from all traditions. Deloria and Wildcat propose that another way is indeed possible and that if we attempt to judge our present "progress" based on the past few centuries, we ought to seriously consider rethinking the very nature of education altogether. The discussions surrounding the metaphysics of American Indians versus the West is a compelling dialogue that sets the stage beautifully for implicating much of the contemporary dilemmas we see in education for both Native American and Western models of schooling.

    Wow, an amazing book about the value and the concept of "Power & Place: Indian Education in America". It deserves a reread and thorough study. Written in essay chapter format, Wildcat and Deloria inform their views on "Indian education" in a philosophical, practical and visionary sense. There is so much to process but at the same time, their arguments seem practical and urgent. Although somewhat dated, the message is relevant and needs to be a guide to activate change in "Indian" education.

Despite being a book that is informed by the American Indian experience, the educational arguments advanced in this book, have been applied and sought by some First Nations here in Canada.
