Ancient Wisdom, Modern Scienceis a collection of essays examining the experiences of Native American tribally controlled colleges and universities working to "Indianize" their math and science curricula. Inspired by the writings of the late Vine Deloria and other Indian scholars, tribal college faculty and key administrators are attempting to take control of the science curriculum and create courses and entire degree programs that link Native and Western ways of knowing. With growing confidence, colleges are validating traditional tribal knowledge and exploring scientific concepts from a Native perspective.
