Abstract:This study explored the process of community-centered social studies curriculum development in a BIA-operated community school in a satellite Navajo community located outside the larger Navajo Nation landbase. The research discusses the dynamics of school and community interaction in such a project, issues involved in integrating the goals of community relevance and congruence with academic expectations, and the ambiguities and paradoxes inherent in the interactions between a non-Native educational researcher and an American Indigenous community. The study explored the power of internal complexities arising from the community's own struggles for identity rearticulation and externally-derived expectations for educational standardization on community-based educational initiatives.
