Keith James is associate professor of social and organizational psychology at Colorado State University and a member of the Onondaga community.


"The authors (nearly all Native Americans) do not downplay the ways in which mainstream science has been used (or abused) to oppress or obliterate native peoples, and no unified approach emerges; nevertheless, the essays collectively convey a sense of the value of a creative synthesis of superficially incompatible traditions."-Choice * Choice *
