Summary

Several aspects of the attitudes held by teachers of American Indian children toward their own and other cultures need to be studied. Recommended research topics along these lines include: (1) a study of the teacher subculture where teachers of Indian pupils live in a distinct enclave, with emphasis upon characteristic attitudes toward Indians generally and pupils particularly and the daily experiences and interactions that maintain and strengthen these attitudes; (2) a study of the social situation of teachers of Indian pupils in an integrated school in a small town or city, with emphasis upon attitudes of teachers and their social interaction in the community; (3) a study of the attitudes of the supervisory force of penal reformatory institutions toward Indian inmates, toward Indian society and culture, and toward American society and its cultures; and (4) a study of the attitudes of teachers toward Indian pupils in urban situations where Indian pupils are a small minority among other minority groups. It is recommended that the strategy of participant observation be employed for these studies, preferably at 2 or 3 sites wherein a series of small interrelated subprojects could be implemented. (LS)
