The Indian Relief Recipient in Minneapolis: An Exploratory Study.
Drilling, Laverne; And Others
Statistical sources for this exploratory study on the Indian relief recipient were "Indians in Minneapolis,""Indian Employment in Minneapolis," and a complete list of all Indian welfare recipients during March of 1969. The sources indicated that a disproportionate number of Minneapolis Indians were already on the city's relief records and that the Indian caseload would be growing more rapidly than any other ethnic caseload. Among the factors of individual Indian welfare recipients studied to isolate problem areas were sex distribution, age distribution, marital status, education, age distribution by sex, marital status by sex, and active military duty of males. A comparison was made of high-school graduates as opposed to non-high-school graduates, relief recipients only, as related to year of first application for relief. There was some encouraging evidence that a high-school education is of use to the urban Indian since the Indian non-graduate needs assistance sooner and for a longer time. Other conclusions are listed, and recommendations are made. Findings of the agency personnel survey, designed to define problem areas as seen by agency personnel, are presented. A map depicting Indian relief clients per census tract is included. The document is appended with numerous tables relating to the factors studied. (CM/GC)
