Indian Americans at Mille Lacs.
Holbert, Victoria L.; And Others
The Training Center for Community Programs prepared a report on the Mille Lacs (Chippewa) Reservation in Minnesota. Data for the report were from 2 separate sources: a survey conducted by the Training Center with the assistance of the Mille Lacs community action program (1967) and an attitudinal survey conducted by Victoria Holbert during 1969. The 1967 survey included 68 adult Indians in the sample, while the 1969 survey included 26. The socioeconomic and attitudinal data reviewed in the 2 surveys point to a "typical reservation of backwardness and mainstream isolation." The surveys reveal that Indians stand no chance of individual or group development unless the inequities of education, occupation, income, and related variables are erased. (LS)
