Indian Employment in Minneapolis.
Woods, Richard G.; Harkins, Arthur M.
Employment problems, and the related personal and social difficulties encountered by Indian Americans in the Twin Cities metropolitan area of Minnesota are discussed. Topics include: rural-urban and intra-city population movements; Indian employment agency experiences; a survey of employment center application files; factors associated with educational attainment; Indian resident surveys in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Duluth; attitudes of employment personnel and other agency personnel toward Indians; and employment problems and city adaptation. It is recommended that an effective Indian center be established with structured agency services and assistance, thereby making it possible to undertake special demonstration and research programs. The appendix contains pertinent statistical data and questionnaires utilized in structured interviews. A bibliography concludes the document. (SW)
