[Xmca-l] Re: Culture, nature, and children

It's pretty common in Native American perspectives to look to nature for exemplars. Here's one source: http://www.drstandley.com/nativeamerican_animal_medicine.shtml but it's also written about from a scholarly perspective, (e.g., Four Arrows, http://www.fielding.edu/whyFielding/about/facultyBio.aspx?Channel=%2FChannels%2FAdmissions&WorkflowItemID=86129da5-9bb3-4a93-8802-3fd5bd72f130).

Subject: [Xmca-l] Culture, nature, and children

Dear All:

I am writing to inquire if anybody knows of work that focuses on cultural differences in attributions of value/prejudice to different aspects of nature (e.g., owls bring bad luck).  I am especially interested in research that looks at how such values are communicated to children either at home and in the community or in certain institutions such as schools, museums, etc.  If you have anything to offer, please let me know off the net.

Thank you very much, ag
