6/22/10: Chronicling Navajo Education
By Jennifer Napier-Pearce
Salt Lake City, Utah – In 1984, ethnographer Donna Deyhle traveled to the Navajo reservation to conduct a study on education and the drop rate among Native American students. In the process, she was welcomed into the lives of three high school girls. Over the next 25 years, Deyhle followed these women as they made their way through school and transitioned into the workplace. Tuesday, Deyhle joins Jennifer Napier-Pearce with a portrait of the women's resiliency against a discriminatory education system.
