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.
