Ponca City and White Eagle, Oklahoma. National Study of American Indian Education, Series I, No. 4, Final Report.
Perkins, Larry M.
As part of the National Study of American Indian Education conducted in 1968-69-70, this final report deals with economy, education, demography, and employment of Indians in the communities of Ponca City and White Eagle, Oklahoma. The study emphasized the attitudes of the people in Ponca City regarding education for all students enrolled in the high school. It was noted that the Indian communities with new leadership were developing awareness among the general population about problems which concerned the Indian people. It was also reported that the White Eagle Development Association, funded through the Episcopal Church in the past and now through National Endowment for the Humanities, has given rise to the most visible and vocal Indian group in the area. The report includes a discussion of the closing of White Eagle School, which served the Indian community for years, in spite of opposition posed by Indian parents. Also included are a thumbnail sketch of Ponca City schools from the reports of the board of education, a map of Indian residential areas, and 4 pages of 1966 Community Audit Reports. (EL)
