NEW MEXICO INDIANS--ECONOMIC, EDUCATIONAL, AND SOCIAL PROBLEMS.
SMITH, ANNE M.
INDIANS COMPRISE 6 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION OF NEW MEXICO, ALTHOUGH THEIR NUMBERS ARE NOT GREAT, THEY REPRESENT A FORMIDABLE PROBLEM SINCE THEY RANK LOWEST IN YEARS OF EDUCATION AND HIGHEST IN THE PERCENTAGE OF UNEMPLOYMENT OF ALL GROUPS IN THE STATE. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN UNEMPLOYMENT AND EDUCATION ARE CLEAR AND UNMISTAKABLE AND UNLESS A LARGER PERCENTAGE OF THE INDIAN CHILDREN ARE ENROLLED IN SCHOOLS AND GRADUATED, THEIR OPPORTUNITIES FOR A BETTER LIFE ARE POOR. NEW MEXICO INDIANS ARE DIVIDED INTO TWO MAJOR GROUPS--THE NAVAJO-APACHE AND PUEBLOS. THIS DOCUMENT PRESENTS A SEPARATE SECTION ON EACH OF THE 19 PUEBLO INDIAN GROUPS, NAVAJOS, JICARILLA APACHE, AND MESCALERO APACHE WHICH DEPICTS THEIR HEALTH PROBLEMS, ECONOMY, SOCIAL PROBLEMS, EDUCATION, UNEMPLOYMENT, RESOURCES, LAND, AND GOVERNMENT. A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL REFERENCE SECTION IS INCLUDED. THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE FOR $1.75 FROM THE MUSEUM OF NEW MEXICO, SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO 87501. (ES)
