On Indian Ground: California is the first in a series of ten books on American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian education. The focus of this text is the 110 tribes in California and the best practices available to educators of native students in K‐16.

This volume explores the history of California Indian education as well as current policies on early childhood education, gifted education, curriculum, counseling, funding, and research. The chapters provide a unique look at crosscutting themes, such as sustainability, economic development, health and wellness, and historical trauma and bias.
