The accomplishments of programs developed and managed by American Indian groups are presented in this document. The philosophy of Federal agencies is discussed in relation to placing with Indian communities the responsibility for administering their own affairs, planning their own programs, and managing their own funds. Special programs offering training and technical assistance to Indian leaders are described. Sketches on 8 Indian communities typify economic development programs which result in increased employment and income for Indian families and additional resources for tribal governments. Nine additional sketches of Indian communities illustrate how reservation development programs include both social and economic development while preserving the traditional way of life and protecting cultural values. In addition, 68 community action agencies and their programs are described. (JH)
