Source Document of Urban American Indians and Alaska Natives.
National Urban Indian Council, Denver, CO.
A source document on American Indians and Alaska Natives in urban areas, produced by the National Urban Indian Council, provides historical background on relocation to cities, comments on the trust relationship for off-reservation American Indians, discusses urban Indian organizations, and gives statistical information on American Indian populations. A section giving historical perspective on the United States westward expansion comments on treaties with the tribes and the federal government's removal, reservation, and allotment policies. The effects of federal relocation programs on Indian people are noted, particularly the termination of government trust responsibility for Indians after they move from their reservations to cities. The development of urban Indian service centers by American Indians and Alaska Natives is described. Tables show American Indian populations in 1970 and 1980, divided by states and separated into rural and urban populations where possible. Urban Indian grantees of federal funds in 1981, including Indian education grantees under Title IV, are enumerated. A glossary of terms and of agencies relevant to urban Indians is given. Off-reservation American Indian and Alaska Native populations in 85 selected major urban areas in 1980 are listed. A map shows the American Indian, Eskimo, and Aleut population of individual states in 1980. (MH)
