National Conference on Manpower Programs for Indians (Kansas City, Missouri, February 15-16, 1967).
Bureau of Employment Security (DOL), Washington, DC.
The purposes of the National Conference on Manpower Programs for Indians were: (1) to inform tribal leaders of the total resources and programs available to American Indians; (2) to learn from tribal leaders more about their problems and needs as American citizens; and (3) to create among the participating agencies a keener awareness of the need for concerted and cooperative efforts in dealing with poverty among Indians. Panel discussions were held on Indian employment problems, maximum participation of Indians in developing their programs, and key problems in developing employability. The latter topic was further subdivided into training and vocational education, health and welfare, general education programs, equal employment opportunities, problems related to housing, transportation and communication, the importance of cooperation in providing services to Indians, agricultural employment opportunities for Indians, planning and development of reservation programs, and social and cultural considerations. This document presents a condensed version of the transcribed proceedings. (CM)
