Bilingual Education to Native American Indians

The war of ideas on each side fighting for and against this issue will for a long time exist, not unless an ultimate solution to this problem is finally met (Baker, 3).This paper presents a report to be made to the Governor of California, Governor Brown, concerning a scenario that greatly puts to test the policies related to Bilingual Education in California. The scenario involved concerns the discovery of oil in the Native American Indian reservation of California, mildly extending to the State of Arizona, called South Mojave Reserve, comprising of a select tribe called Hakama. This tribe is entirely entitled to the ownership of the discovered oil on its reserve and not even the government has the right to explore it without the occupiers’ permission. The dilemma here is an exchange of favor, where the California Indian Council demands Bilingual Education in exchange for granting permission to the State in the exploration of the greatly needed resource in its reservation. This report highlights brief details on the facts of Native American Indians in California, policies that might be applied by the Governor in an aim to settle the matter, and other vital issues that might be relevant in the talks that would involve the Governor and the Native American Indians. The conclusion involves a preferred choice of action and the impending pros and cons that would accompany such a choice, which would have already been highlighted in the policies.Native American Indians in North America refer to the indigenous population that resides within the borders of the present-day United States of America. These were the original occupiers of North America until other groups started arriving that comprised majorly of European origin and the Africans that were brought in through the slave trade. They comprise of distinct tribes and ethnic populations that survive by pooling together in isolated populations (Williams, Kirk, and Starn, 23).
