Humphrey, Theodore R.
A 4-man field team from the University of Colorado, under the auspices of the National Study of American Indian Education, spent 6 weeks in the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, Montana, in the fall of 1968. The team studied the public school system of Browning, Montana, the major town on the reservation and reported on educational facilities, enrollment, teacher characteristics, and curricular offerings. Some of the problems noted include inadequate housing for teaching staff, limited boarding facilities for students, inadequate educational facilities, limited curricular offerings, and high operational expenses. Background information covering physical, social, and economic aspects of the area is also presented. A bibliography with emphasis on the Blackfeet Indians is included.
