In this episode, we give examples of education which involves schools that infuse native American culture into its curriculums. Many indigenous education institutions and educators realize that not all knowledge comes from a book. We give examples of why it is important to critique a book carefully and try to find books that are written about an indigenous culture by native American authors. This episode will also describe native colleges, and how they differ from mainstream college institutions. Why is is better in some cases for native students?
