Information Concerning the Washoe County Indian Community.
Nevada Univ., Reno. Coll. of Education.
Information relative to Indian residents of Washoe County, Nevada, has been developed to provide an analysis of educational and employment needs. Population figures are presented by age and sex for 3 basic Indian residence groups in the county. Statistics are presented in tabular form for Indian student enrollment in area schools, income level of Indian families living on Federal lands, and Indian families on welfare from 2 Federally-owned land areas. Employment statistics indicate a serious need to provide marketable skills for Indians in these 2 areas. It is noted that Indian students with school attendance problems or who drop out of school generally come from families with low income, seasonal employment, or other social problems. The study points up that informational gaps exist relative to employment status, education, and attitudes of the Indian population. (JH)
