The Sioux on the Reservations: The American Colonial Problem.
Hagen, E.E.; Schaw, Louis C.
A study conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology examined problems surrounding the socioeconomic and cultural status of the Sioux on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Indian reservations. Study of economic status revealed the similarity of Indian problems to those faced by emerging underdeveloped colonial or ex-colonial peoples around the world. The study deals with the effects of the Bureau of Indian Affairs program to resettle the Indians in urban environments, and the projected effects on the reservation populations. Problems are examined from a historical-psychological perspective, and the study casts light on many of the problems concerning Indian relations with the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The authors indicate that while the study deals exclusively with the Sioux, many of the problems discussed have a direct relevance to Indians of other tribes. (DK)
