Indian Americans in Omaha and Lincoln.
Harkins, Arthur M.; And Others
The study focuses on American Indians who have migrated to urban centers in an effort to escape conditions on the reservations and to find employment and seek a better life. Discussed in the study are 6 tribes which make up the majority of the Indian population in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska: Omaha, Winnebago, Santee Sioux, Iowa, Ponca, Sac, and Fox (with the majority of Indians coming from the Omaha and Winnebago Indian reservations). The document discusses problematic conditions which the Indian faces in these 2 cities and reports the results of questionnaires sent to agencies in the Omaha and Lincoln areas seeking information on the extent and nature of contact with Indians and on the general conditions of Indians. In keeping with this, attempts to help the urban Indian through Federal assistance and other service agencies are discussed. Seven appendices are included. (EL)
