American Indian Education

The site was set up in 2009 and is hosted by Northern Arizona University.

It is a comprehensive web site that aims to provide information and on many topics related to American Indian Education (AIE). It offers many, many links to other interesting sites. Some of the areas of focus of this site are the history of AIE and the way American Indians are being taught now. It has interesting pages on learning styles, identity, literacy and languages among many others. More than specializing on any one theme, it is a very up to date link to hundreds of relevant resources on the Web, be they sites, articles or journals on everything to do with North American Indigenous Education. It is scholarly and a really good place to start any investigation on American Indians.
