Lesson 8:
Continue always in the application of the things you desire educationally, culturally, or otherwise, and never give up until you reach your objective.

Lesson 9:
Try never to repeat yourself in any one discourse in saying the same thing over and over again except when you are making new points, because repetition is tiresome and it annoys those who hear the repetition.

Lesson 10:
Knowledge is power. When you know a thing and can hold your ground on that thing and win over your opponents on that thing, those who hear you learn to have confidence in you and will trust your ability.

Lesson 11:
In reading books written by White authors, of whatever kind, be aware of the fact that they are not written for your particular benefit of your race. They always write from their own point of view and only in the interest of their own race.

10 Rules for Teaching Native Students
i didn't get this article

I prefer the comment altho the article has good points:

“This article is fine but it makes things too complicated. Don’t send your children to white controlled white managed white administrated schools. Does anyone think these racist imperialist colonialist people will ever teach the truth about matters? Homeschooling and tribal schools are the only possibly good option. This also means though that we must embrace our responsibility to educate the children of our people in accordance with our ways. We can not abdicate our responsibility, and those of us who do so will reap the inevitable crop from this irresponsible choice. Does it mean one might have to spend long hours studying our languages, restoring our languages, recovering our history and ways? Absolutely. It is exhausting, long work. But necessary. Those who farm their children out to the whites to be educated choose what is essentially a residential school outcome for their own children! Such persons are foolish to do so and should not be surprised when their children return home with contempt for their own culture and ignorant of their own language. To expect the whites to teach our children our language and culture and to educate them to be contributing members of our nations is madness. How could that ever happen? It will never happen and to think it will is delusion. Friends, cousins, brothers. Educate your own children. If you do not accept this responsibility, then you are accepting the outcome when you do not.”

Lesson 3:
To be able to read intelligently, you must first be able to master the language of your country. To do this, you must be well acquainted with its grammar and the science of it. People judge you by your writing and your speech. If you write badly and incorrectly they become prejudiced towards your intelligence, and if you speak badly and incorrectly, those who hear you become disgusted and will not pay much attention to you, but in their hearts laugh after you.

Lesson 4:
A leader who is to teach men and present any fact of truth to man must first be taught in his subject.

Lesson 5:
Never write or speak on a subject you know nothing about, for there is always somebody who knows that particular subject to laugh at you or to ask you embarrassing questions that may make others laugh at you.

Lesson 6:
You should read four hours a day. The best time to read is in the evening after you have retired from your work and after you have rested and before sleeping hours, but do so before morning, so that during your sleeping hours what you read may become subconscious, that is to say, planted in your memory.

Lesson 1:
One must never stop reading. Read everything that you can read, that is of standard knowledge. Don’t waste time reading trashy literature. The idea is that personal experience is not enough for a human to get all the useful knowledge of life, because the individual life is too short, so we must feed on the experience of others.

Lesson 2:
Read history incessantly until you master it. This means your own national history, the history of the world, social history, industrial history, and the history of the different sciences; but primarily, the history of man. If you do not know what went on before you came here and what is happening at the time you live, but away from you, you will not know the world and will be ignorant of the world and mankind.
