Indian universities and colleges -- United States; Indians of North America -- Education (Higher);
A clash of cultures occurred in history when Europeans discovered the Americas with its diverse, indigenous peoples. One of the many negative results of this clash can be seen in the legacy of the U.S. government's dealings with American Indians and their education. Indians were very resistant to the white man's interest in their spirituality, but war and disease broke down many tribes and left them vulnerable to English dominance and control (Wright, 1989).
