Indian Americans in Chicago.
Woods, Richard G.; Harkins, Arthur M.
The location, funding, organization, goals, and activities of the St. Augustine's Center for American Indians are described in an attempt to focus attention on the problems of urban Indians. Services provided by the Center in the areas of social and psychiatric casework, medical and legal aid, and subsistence requirements are discussed. Characteristics of clients requesting services from the Center during 1967 are presented concerning such factors as health, education, mobility, employment, and family. Apparent relationships are noted between alcoholism and increased education or marriage of Indians to non-Indians. A discussion of the role of Indian Centers in acculturation of urban Indians and in collection of data for research purposes is included. (JH)
