Abstract:
This dissertation examines the evolution of development practices in a Native American community by looking at how participation becomes more or less present in local-level decision-making. By using education as a lens to track changes in development practices, I describe the challenges and opportunities that arose for a small-scale development enterprise - referred to as 'the Nonprofit'- as it negotiated program implementation with various different players and stakeholders. I analyze how different strategies were developed and adopted during the first three years of the Nonprofit's operations to show how it gradually became more structured as development programs expanded from the community to the district.
