Indian Voices; The First Convocation of American Indian Scholars.
Costo, Rupert; And Others
The document reports on The First Convocation of American Indian Scholars, which was attended by professional people, artists, traditional historians, etc. As noted, the 4-day convocation was conceived, organized, and directed entirely by Native Americans and was limited to 200 participants, among whom were 36 Native American students. The document is a record of the assembly presentation, papers given at panels, and discussions held at the convocation only, since a comprehensive report of the proceedings would have been too voluminous. As stated, the aims of the convocation were to form a solid basis for educational accomplishment and to unite the scholarly forces on behalf of Native Americans. Among the 15 papers included in the report are (1) American Indian Philosophy and Its Relation to the Modern World, (2) Implications of the 1968 Civil Rights Act in Tribal Autonomy, (3) The American Indian in American History, (4) Native American Studies Programs: Review and Evaluation, (5) Native Arts in America, (6) Modern Psychology and Child Development: The American Indian Case, and (7) Red Power: Real or Potential. The document concludes with a list of convocation participants. (EL)
