This book provides the first history of the AIM “survival schools,” two alternative, culture-based, community schools founded by the American Indian Movement and other Indian parents in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in 1972. It tells the story of the schools’ origins, founding, structure, curriculum, evolution, closing, impact, meanings, and significance from 1968 to 2008 and places them in their local, national, and global contexts.
