SITUATION OF THE SPANISH AMERICANS OF NORTHERN NEW MEXICO.
KNOWLTON, CLARK S.
THE SPANISH AMERICANS OF NORTHERN NEW MEXICO HAVE CONSTITUTED ONE OF THE UNRECOGNIZED DISADVANTAGED GROUPS. PER CAPITA INCOME IS LOW AND THE RATES OF UNEMPLOYMENT AND WELFARE ARE HIGH. THE CAUSES OF THE PRESENT SITUATION ARE--(1) LOSS OF LAND, (2) CULTURAL AND LINGUISTIC DISCRIMINATORY ATTITUDES, (3) NON-PROVISION OF ADEQUATE PROGRAMS TO ACCELERATE THE ACCULTURATION PROCESS, (4) TOO LIMITED DEVELOPMENT OF FLOOD AND IRRIGATION SYSTEMS, (5) INADEQUATE SCHOOL SYSTEMS, (6) INEFFICIENT FARMING PRACTICES, AND (7) LACK OF DEVELOPMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES. RECOMMENDATIONS MADE TO IMPROVE THE SITUATION INCLUDE--PROGRAMS OF ACCULTURATION, ECONOMIC PROGRAMS, SYSTEMATIC IDENTIFICATION AND UTILIZATION OF SPANISH AMERICAN LEADERS, A SYSTEM TO PROVIDE LAND, VILLAGE IRRIGATION SYSTEMS, AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS.
