Indian Education Training Institute (Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington, February 1971 to November 1971).
Gonzaga Univ., Spokane, WA.
The 1971 Indian Education Training Institute outlined in this document focused on development of knowledges and attitudes necessary for those involved in educating American Indians. As noted, full participation by Indian people was sought in all phases of the institute, and Indian views were primary throughout the advisory committee meetings and the pre-conference planning session. Of the 50 conference participants, 76% were Indians representing colleges, tribes, and urban Indian groups in the Northwest; chosen to obtain views from the widest possible cross-section of Indian people, the participants ranged from college students to those holding doctoral degrees. In this report on the institute, basic information on the program (including guidelines, evaluation, and the role of the Pacific Northwest Indian Center) is given. The 18 appendices include lists of program participants, committee members, trustees, and financial directors, and examples of correspondence with various individuals and institutions. A related document, RC 005 884, contains a verbatim record of proceedings. (PS)
