Indian Housing in Minneapolis and Saint Paul.
Craig, Gregory W.; And Others
Surveys conducted in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota, dealing with housing problems of urban Indians are reviewed in this report. Housing conditions, Indian attitudes toward urban housing and the community, family characteristics, and deficiencies in housing agencies are discussed. The surveys strongly indicate that Indians want better housing. When the Indians' desires for better housing are held up due to inadequacies and incompetencies in housing and related agencies, the compounding of a grave social problem results. Nine suggestions for action on better housing are offered. It is concluded that an Indian public which is sophisticated in housing matters, and which has been able to retain the devoted and effective involvement of Indian professionals and politicians can go a long way toward identifying and resolving metropolitan housing needs. Information and an effective action program to change housing conditions for urban Indians is needed. Tables depicting the results of the surveys are included in the appendix. (SW)
