Professor of Educational Foundations, Teacher Education, and Indigenous Educational History. 

Great Depiction of "No Child Left Behind" and standardized testing.   A policy that has all but eliminated creativity and imagination from education.  

Santuario de Santa Cruz de Chimayo. An example of Religious syncretism...a pre-conquest Pueblo sacred site transformed into a Catholic sacred site.

At El Colegio de Santa Cruz de Tlaltelolco, the first University in America dedicated to the intellectual development of Native American Students.  Founded in 1532 by Franciscans who were part of the Humanist movement of Europe.  

Fabulous Cafe in Hawaiian homeland area outside of Honolulu.  On my one and only trip to the Island for a conference. Fortunately my good freind and former student Kalani Beyer

(a native Hawaiian) was there to give me the insider tour!

Fountain at the Central Plaza of Coyoacan, Mexico DF.  One of my favorite places in the world.  Coyote is an important term to me as many of my ancestors are listed in records as "Coyotes," which signified a mixture of Indian and Spanish, with more Indian than Spanish.  

Candles of hope at el Cerro de Tepeyac
