Dr. Eunice Romero-Little is an Associate Professor of Indigenous language education and applied linguistics at Arizona State University. She is deeply interested in how children learn in and out of school and the role of language(s) in child socialization. Her research today informs policy and practice in early childhood education for Indigenous children. In the Pueblo world, where oral traditions and child rearing practices guide intergenerational learning and teaching, infants and children are viewed very early on as integral to the sociocultural fabric of home and community. Dr. Romero-Little is from Cochiti Pueblo.
“It is hard work making sure your grandchildren (and children) learn their cultures [and languages]. If we don’t teach them, who will?” – Dr. Eunice Romero-Little
