North American Indians In Towns and Cities: A Bibliography. Public Administration Series: Bibliography P-234.
Bramstedt, Wayne G.
Sources of information about North American Indians in towns and cities are contained in this bibliography of 850 entries. Citations are primarily in the social sciences; many relate to urban studies, minority peoples, and migration, as well as specific Indian issues. The entries, dating from 1944 to 1978, are listed alphabetically by author, include chapters in books, periodicals, masters' theses and doctoral dissertations (primarily for degrees in anthropology), and newspaper writings. Documents available through ERIC or Dissertation Abstracts International are identified. Introductory material covers the methods used in compiling the bibliography, summarizes research needs in the area of urban Indian documentation, and points out areas where the bibliography is not exhaustive, i.e., newspaper articles, Canadian documents, and theses and dissertations. Discussion of research needs focuses on variety and balance in the choice of urban settings, tribal categories, topics, and investigative methods; greater use of the participant-observer technique; and a thorough review of the literature.
