Through descriptions drawn from interviews of Native American musicians and observations of tribal musical events, this paper presents a challenge to the conservative educational practices in public schools of the United States. In conclusion, the paper suggests that by more closely
examining different cultural learning, values and traditions, music educators might use the best elements of all cultures to forge a stronger cultural community.
