Explorations in Ethnic Studies
This issue of Explorations in Ethnic Studies brings into focus the vision NAIES has had from the onset, i.e., the pursuit of ”explorations and solutions” to problems within the context of oppression as they relate to the coloured ethnic minority experience in the US. and other places. In two separate essays, lack Forbes and Vine Deloria present issues which ethnic studies proponents must address if such study is to be viable. These writers recognize ethnic studies as being about the business of empowering individuals to be creatively involved in their futures. Forbes and Deloria present varying perspectives, recognizing the history and implications of fascism and institutional racism on a global scale as well as the more immediate policies such as affirmative action and ethnic minority preference.
