(AP) - The new Navajo Bible, painstakingly translated in bits and pieces since 1910, may spark a new interest in the Indians' ancient tribal language as well as promote Christianity, religious leaders say. "It's the biggest thrill of my life. When I got it I just sat and cried," said Lois Martin, a missionary who began working on the translation with her Navajo husband, Geronimo Martin, about 40 years ago. Her husband, who was blind and read from an English Braille Bible to make his translations, played a part in the final proof corrections before he died in September 1984. It is not the first time the complete Bible has been translated into an American Indian language, said William Wonderly, translation consultant for the American Bible Society, publisher of the Navajo Bible. The Bible was translated more than a century ago into the Massachusetts Indian language, and also into the Dakota dialect of the Sioux language during the 1800s, he said. But the introduction of the first full Navajo Bible was anxiously awaited by many members of the United States' largest Indian nation. "The Navajo people, those who have become Christians, have an intense love, a fervent love, of the Bible," Wonderly said. "There was a real air of enthusiasm at those ceremonies. It was a historic occasion which will never be repeated." The book of Genesis was translated into Navajo and published in 1910, along with the gospel of Mark. Parts of Exodus, Psalms, Luke, Romans, 1st Corinthians and Revelation were completed by Christian missionaries in 1917. In 1930, Acts was published, like the others, by the American Bible Society, Wonderly said. A serious push to translate the entire New Testament began during the 1940s — led by the Martins and missionaries Faye Edgerton and Faith Hill — and the volume was published in 1956.

Textbooks ignore religion, study says NEW YORK (AP) - An examination of textbooks used in public schools in this country finds that they virtually ignore religion as an element in American life and discount traditional family values. The research, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, found that social studies texts, intended to introduce youngsters to contemporary U.S. society, contain no mention whatever of ordinary religious activities, such as praying or going to church. The report says the texts through the fourth grade contain no references of any kind to the country's majority faith, Protestantism, and only indirectly — in illustrations of a priest and rabbi — to Catholicism and Judaism. "The dominant theme is the denial of religion as an actual important part of American life," says New York University psychology professor Paul C. Vitz, who made the study under a grant from the National Institute of Education, a research arm of the Education Department. The study involved widely used social studies texts for grades one through four, books used to teach reading in grades three through six, and history books used in fifth and sixth grades and in high school — altogether 60 books. "The general finding is that public school textbooks present a biased representation of both religion and many traditional values," says Vitz, a Catholic layman. He presented a summary of his findings recently at a meeting sponsored by the Center on Religion & Soiciety, funded by the Rockford Institute of Illinois, which promotes studies of the religious roots of culture. Vitz says both basic readers and social studies texts "are so written as to represent a systematic denial of the history, heritage, beliefs and values of a very large segment of the American people." For instance, he says the first- through-fourth-grade social studies texts, in addressing the family, commonly define it only as "people you live with," and never use the words, "marriage," "husband," "wife" or "homemaker." "There is not one textual reference to marriage as the foundation of the family," he says. "There was not one portrayal of a contemporary American family that clearly featured traditional sex roles." Countless references are made to "mothers and other women Working outside the home in such occupations as medicine, transportation and politics," he says, but no cases indicating that a mother-homemaker is "an important job." Moreover, he says, only money, status and enjoyment are presented as motivations for work, with no indication that many work "out of concern for others or because of the intrinsic value of certain kinds of work. "The absence of any concern for non-material values was so extreme that not one discussion of a family budget included any money for charity, or money for others in need." Giving money to a church was never mentioned. While the social studies texts through the fourth grade omit any specific reference to typical religious activity, he says one text mentions the rural Amish, while others cited Indian rain dances and prayer to "EarthMother." But in a reference to the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving, "no mention is made of God to whom the thanks were given," Vitz says. "Other examples of washing out of religion are such remarks as 'Pilgrims are people who make long trips' or 'Mardi Gras is the end of winter celebration.' "It's the day preceding the Christian period of Lent. Of llth and 12th grade U.S. history books, the report says none recognized America's "great religious energy and creativity," and adds: "None of these texts had any serious coverage-of conservative Protestantism in the last 100 years, although a few mentioned the Scopes trial... None of them had any serious appreciation of positive Catholic contributions to American life." In several world history textbooks for the sixth grade, the life of the Moslem founder, Mohammed, gets "much more coverage" than the life of the founder of Christianity, Jesus, Vitz reports. "One of the strange characteristic of many of the texts was their failure to mention the Protestant Reformation," he says, and in cases when they do, to omit the issues involved in it. He adds: "Some kind of repression or denial of Christianity is demonstrated by how these texts treat the Christian religion." For instance, he cites one textbook's treatment of Joan of Arc in which her story is told with no reference at all to God, religion, or her being named a saint. "The treatment is entirely secular and seems to have been included because Joan of Arc was a woman," Vitz says. Concerning basic readers for grades three through six, the report says that among 670 stories and articles, there were none whose "central motivation or major content deals with religion." "In contrast to the serious neglect of Christianity and Judaism, there was a minor spiritual or occult emphasis in a number of stories about American Indians,'' Vitz says.
