Leadership in Public Arenas Male Leadership

Until the 1980s, most leadership roles in the community were held by males. It was also less common for girl children to be allowed to continue their public-school education beyond the sixth or seventh grade. Elementary schooling was available in the communities, but high school required leaving the home community to attend one of several American Indian boarding schools operated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The net result was that men were more likely to have completed a high-school education than women. They also had more experience dealing with the world beyond the island where English was the commonly spoken language. In most respects, a woman's place was considered in her father's or her husband's home. In the 1960s and 1970s, a few young women began to attend high school. In 1980, the communities experienced increased communication with the introduction of television. Homes already had telephones, but television was a way to bring the outside American lifestyle into the home. As the population increased, more young people were also exposed to non-Native teachers and non-Native expectations. In 1976, the community built its own high school and with this and the increased level of communication generally more young girls began to receive a high-school education and both boys and girls began to consider seriously the importance of college.
