page collection of 11 papers from the Second
Annual Learn in Beauty Conference held in Flagstaff, Arizona, in June
2000. A review in the 2002 issue of Language Teaching and
Research (Vol. 6, #1) notes "I welcome this book as one attempt
to bring together a wide range of aboriginal and non-aboriginal
voices. Those voices include university professors, school board
directors, and teachers of indigenous languages. I will use this
collection to inform, clarify, and inspire my own teaching, to affirm
my own observations, and most importantly to bring other aboriginal
voices to my students who are dealing with the same issues, often in
isolation and with few resources. For current and future teachers,
this volume will be a useful aid in assessing their own situations and
in making their own informed choices." ISBN 0-9670554-1-5.
