I have spent as much time as I can for the present. This is a book I will want to consult, in the development of First Nations curricula at the university level. I believe many of the notions fit well with the Western perspective of self-directed learning (cf. http://www.buccaneerscholar.com/). In particular, I like the perspective regarding empowerment and its connection to respect. I will probably return later to give this book more "stars" (I am just beginning to evaluate books!).
