Bridging generations: American Indian family perceptions of home/school partnerships is a case study that examines perspectives of community members affiliated with a California Indian reservation. This study investigates and documents perceptions of parents and families of American Indian elementary and secondary students enrolled in local and regional schools. These voices, currently under-represented in the literature, contribute new knowledge to the field of education, inform teaching, learning, and policy decisions regarding this particular American Indian community, and has implications for others historically under-served by educational institutions. Research data may inform investment approaches tribal governments employ towards developing home-school-community partnerships. This study posits methods for how educators and administrators (in schools and tribal governments) may better serve students and families by identifying appropriate ways to improve opportunities and outcomes for all stakeholders.
