University of Illinois Press

In honor of generations of Native American teachers and learners that have gone before us and in support of future generations, this chapter speaks to the present generation—those responsible for teaching and learning and caring for our communities today. Critically analyzing forces that both stifle and support Native scholars and health care professionals, this chapter opens dialogue around indigenous pedagogy, indigenous research methods, and pipeline programs from personal accounts of being a graduate student in a medical school and a new faculty member endeavoring to find purpose, meaning, and balance in the world. Stories shared offer survival accounts and lessons learned to help others navigate both personal and professional journeys in Western academia.

Keywords:   indigenous pedagogy, indigenous research, graduate studies, new faculty, native scholars, medical school, lessons learned
