Institute of American Indian Arts. To Amend the Act of August 27, 1935, to Provide for the Administration, Maintenance, and Operation of the Institute of American Indian Arts by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board. Hearing Before the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs. House of Representatives, Ninety-Sixth Congress, Second Session on H.R. 6850.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs.
The Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs met July 1, 1980, to take testimony on Bill H.R. 6850 which proposed specific statutory authorization for the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), transferred administrative control from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to the Indian Arts and Crafts Board (IACB), and reserved the BIA educational facility in Santa Fe exclusively for the Institute's use. The Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior and Related Agencies testified that his committee supported the bill and recommended renovation of the Albuquerque Indian School (AIS) for use as a Pueblo high school. The bill was opposed by the Department of the Interior and a panel of members of the Pueblo community, who wanted the Santa Fe facility returned to them for use as a high school, and stressed the need for academic programs and the feeling that the AIS was in a bad location. The National Congress of American Indians favored a new art institute at a location to be determined by the tribes. The Zuni Tribal Council supported the bill but recommended appointment of a governing body expressly for the IAIA. A representative from the North American Indian Museums Association stated that the bill did not provide for Indian involvement in the IACB. (CM)
