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.
