Teaching Native Pride: Upward Bound and the Legacy of Isabel Bond (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Native and non-Native voices tell the story of the federally sponsored Upward Bound program at the University of Idaho, intertwining personal anecdotes and memories with accounts of the program's inception and goals, as well as regional Native American history and Isabel Bond's Idaho family history. Dedicated to helping low-income and at-risk students attend college, the curriculum celebrated that heritage, and many Native students broke cycles of poverty, isolation, and disenfranchisement, and non-Indians gained a new respect for Idaho's first peoples. And shows how one person can make a difference.
