Culture and Language Revitalization for Native American Students: An Annotated Bibliography

Produced by West Comprehensive Center at WestEd


Native American communities across the country are engaged in the complex process of teaching young people the value of traditional languages and cultural practices while ensuring that youth are college and career ready.

This annotated bibliography is designed to inform educators, tribal leaders, researchers, and policymakers about research-based efforts to identify promising practices for reclaiming and revitalizing language and culture at all stages of education.

Each entry features the name of the publication, bibliographic information, an abstract, and, if available, a link to the article itself or to information about purchasing it.

The entries cover eight topic areas:

  • College-community partnerships
  • Culture-based education and culturally responsive teaching
  • Early childhood education
  • Family and community involvement/engagement
  • Language revitalization and immersion efforts
  • Mentoring and peer tutoring
  • Policy considerations
  • Teacher preparation and support

Findings, recommendations, and implications for policy, practice, and research are also highlighted in each entry as applicable.
