A Survey of the Administrative Situation in Alaska As It Affects Eskimos, Indians, and Aleuts.
Arnold, Robert D.
The document examined the trend over the last decade of an increase in the number and variety of programs which affect, or are open to, the Alaska Native (Eskimos, Aleuts, and other Indians). The reasons for the trend were reported as (1) the new Federal programs and increases in funding through the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Public Health Service, (2) congressional legislation aimed at improving the lot of all deprived citizens, (3) the efforts of the government of the State of Alaska, and (4) the work of state and community Native spokesmen. Three categories of administration were considered: state, Federal, and agency. Specific program areas surveyed were education; adult education, training, and job placement; health services; welfare; law enforcement and administration of justice; local government; land and resources; community and regional development; community projects and public works; loans and technical assistance; and housing.
