A Place To Be Navajo is the only book-length ethnographic account of a revolutionary Indigenous self-determination movement that began in 1966 with the Rough Rock Demonstration School. Called Diné Bi'ólta', The People's School, in recognition of its status as the first American Indian community-controlled school, Rough Rock was the first to teach in the Native language and to produce a body of quality children's literature by and about Navajo people. These innovations have positioned the school as a leader in American Indian and bilingual/bicultural education and have enabled school participants to wield considerable influence on national policy. This book is a critical life history of this singular school and community. McCarty's account grows out of 20 years of ethnographic work by the author with the Diné (Navajo) community of Rough Rock. The story is told primarily through written text, but also through the striking black-and-white images of photographer Fred Bia, a member of the Rough Rock community. Unlike most accounts of Indigenous schooling, this study involves the active participation of Navajo community members. Their oral testimony and that of other leaders in Indigenous/Navajo education frame and texture the account. Informed by critical theories of education, this book is not just the story of a single school and community. It is also an inquiry into the larger struggle for self-determination by Indigenous and other minoritized communities, raising issues of identity, voice, and community empowerment. A Place To Be Navajo asks whether school can be a place where children learn, question, and grow in an environment that values and builds upon who they are. The author argues that the questions Rough Rock raises, and the responses they summon, implicate us all.
Comments to eBook A Place to Be Navajo: Rough Rock and the Struggle for Self-Determination in Indigenous Schooling (Sociocultural, Political, and Historical Studies in Education)
Kea
McCarthy is a brilliant scholar (ethnographer) who uses a strong social justice lens to extend voice to the Navajo people! She applies a community conscious research approach, as she collaborates with indigenous communities-- in this case, the Navajo people, to bring to light their stories and to position their narratives in a larger conversation-- so eloquently. In this book, McCarthy documents her thoughts reflexively and draws the reader to take a glimpse into the lives of the Navajo people and the Navajo land! McCarthy evokes a spirit of advocacy and ally!
Brightfury
Teresa McCarty is an expert in this field and gives an ethnographically rich account of the school at Rough Rock. This book is relevant for those studying the anthropology of education and is a must-quote for case studies in indigenous education.

This book was assigned for my Anthropology of Education class. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job on this topic. It is quite dense, so don't expect an easy-read. It's perfect for academics and policy-makers.

The history of this community is especially relevant, so McCarty goes into great detail about that. Navajo's were once sent to boarding schools run by white racist educators who robbed them of their language and culture. They physically abused kids who were caught using their own language or following Navajo traditions. Their experience with "schools," as defined by American educators, was traumatic and not something they wanted their children to experience.

In the 1950s and 1960s federal grants were given out to support community-run schools and economic development programs, including roads, public health clinics, preschools, and community stores. Instead of hiring white "experts" to develop and run these, Navajo's actually participated in deciding what their community needed and hired Navajo's to do the work (which also provided much-needed income).

The demonstration school was probably the most important community-run project funded by these grants. Navajo's designed a school that prepared students for life outside the reservation--the white man's world--and also taught the Navajo language and culture. Unfortunately, the original grants ran out and school administrators spent most of their time chasing new sources of federal money to fund the school. Without consistent funding to teach Navajo language and culture, the programs sometimes lapsed. The demonstration school has survived many ups and downs. It is a stunning example of a school that brought a community together, provided economic advancement, and used bilingual/bicultural programs to foster pride and empowerment.
