Explorations in Sights and Sounds
In this ethnohistory of American Indian education, Margaret Szasz broadly interprets education to mean the transmission of culture over time. Within "the arena of contact," prominent Indians who helped mediate the relations between Euro -- and Native Americans are identified. Szasz calls these individuals "cultural brokers," and her analysis of their roles in the history of colonial education is an important contribution to scholarship.
