Eck, Norman K.
Written specifically for Navajo junior high through college students, but also serving those interested in modern reservation developments and processs, the third volume of a curricular series on Navajo history provides a synthesis of data and pictorial records on current events in the areas of Navajo government, economic development, and health. Unit I focuses on historical aspects of the tribal council: oil and mineral development; business council; Indian Reorganization Act; stock reduction and constitution; constitutional assembly; council reorganization; World War II; budgets; voting; Navajo-Hopi Rehabilitation Act; advisory committee; tribal election procedures; Navajo constitution; beginning of the chapter system; chapter listings, officers, and duties; and Navajo suffrage and citizenship. Unit II describes the history, personal viewpoints, and current tribal efforts regarding the joint use area, Office of Navajo Economic Opportunity, and Dinebeiina Be Agaditahe (People's Legal Services). Unit III considers development of the economy (employment, unemployment, and Navajo energy policy); natural resources (coal, uranium, oil, irrigation, and forest products); and small business (examples, problems, importance). Unit IV addresses health programs, philosophy, planning, agencies, motor vehicle accidents, and alcohol. Unit V presents an interview with tribal chairman, Peter MacDonald; contemporary viewpoints on energy, tribal budget, and federal support; and the tribal organization chart. (NEC)
