[Presidential Message on Indian Affairs.]
Nixon, Richard
President Nixon's message pointed out the deprivation and the injustices which the American Indians have suffered for centuries. It was noted that now is the time to break with the past and create conditions for a new era in which the Indian future is determined by Indian acts and decisions. The relationship between the Federal Government and the Indian tribes regarding termination of trusteeship was pointed out, and Indian problems such as education, economic development, and health were discussed. It was concluded that Indians need Federal assistance but that the government needs Indian energies and Indian leadership if its assistance is to be effective. (EL)
