INDIAN COMMUNITIES AND PROJECT HEAD START. SUMMARY AND OBSERVATIONS IN THE DAKOTAS AND MINNESOTA, TOGETHER WITH AN APPRAISAL OF POSSIBILITIES FOR A HEAD START PROGRAM AMONG THE POTAWATOMI INDIANS OF KANSAS.
WAX, MURRAY L.; AND OTHERS
THE HOMOGENOUS AND HARMONIOUS INDIAN BAND HAS VANISHED, IF IT EVER EXISTED. THE CONTEMPORARY INDIAN COMMUNITY IS AS HETEROGENEOUS AND DIVIDED AS ANY MORE ORDINARY COMMUNITY. OEO PROGRAMS ARE SOMETIMES MISDIRECTED BECAUSE THEY ARE ORGANIZED FROM THE ASSUMPTION THAT ONE INDIAN CAN SPEAK FOR THE TOTAL COMMUNITY. TWO REPORTS CONCERNING HEAD START PROGRAMS AMONG INDIANS WERE MADE. ONE REPORT CONCLUDES THAT, JUDGED BY ORDINARY SCHOLASTIC STANDARDS, THE HEAD START PROGRAMS OBSERVED AMONG THE INDIANS OF MINNESOTA AND THE DAKOTAS WERE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL, WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS. IN THE SECOND REPORT, INVESTIGATING THE POSSIBILITIES AND PROBLEMS OF INITIATING A HEAD START PROGRAM, THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT SUCH A PROGRAM WOULD NOT BE SUCCESSFUL WITH THE POTAWATOMI INDIANS OF KANSAS.
