Media, Dissertations, and Other Publications from the Tribal Colleges

Tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) educate, entertain, and inform their communities not only in the classroom but also through other media. Many faculty and staff members have written doctoral dissertations. Some have written fiction, non-fiction, and poetry books. A few TCUS have their own radio and television stations while others produce programs on other stations. At least one college – the College of Menominee Nation – is offering material via cutting-edge digital media.

This Resource Guide supplements the Media issue of TCJ (Vol. 20, No. 1), which includes articles about news media on campuses and tribal college libraries but little about the book titles on the library shelves. The Resource Guide has four categories: Books, Dissertations, Newsletters, and Television/Radio/Digital Media.

The literature and research listed in this guide indicate the creative energy of the TCU community. However, this list does not include everything that TCU educators have published.

For more information on research or additional dissertations, see past Resource Guides published by Tribal College Journal in the following issues: Vol. 9, No. 1; Vol. 16, No. 2; and Vol. 18, No. 3.

Salish Kootenai College President Joe McDonald’s 1982 dissertation, “An Assessment of Accreditation Practices in Developing Indian Community Colleges Compared with Non-Indian Community Colleges in the Northwest,” is discussed in Vol. 13, No. 1.

To read about specific literature titles used in the TCU classrooms, see Michael Thompson’s article, “Honoring the Word: Classroom instructors find that students respond best to oral tradition” in Vol. 19, No. 2.

These laws also allow for tribal forestry professionals to integrate and incorporate tribal values of land sacredness into forest resource management while embracing and defining tribal and cultural self-determination. Victoria Yazzie, Ph.D., is a faculty member in the Natural Resources Department at the College of Menominee Nation.
