Report of the Assembly Subcommittee on Indian Affairs to the Standing Committee on Governmental Operations.
New York State Assembly, Albany.
The 1970 legislative session of the New York State Assembly created the Subcommittee on Indian Affairs to review New York's Indian Law and state services provided to Indian reservations. Seven hearings were held on reservations to gather opinions, suggestions, and criticisms of the on-reservation Indian community. In addition, a special hearing was held to explore circumstances surrounding extensive land claims made by the Oneida Nation. This report contains a summary of the subcommittee's activities during a 10-month period and recommendations for administrative actions in the areas of communication, jurisdiction, administration, housing, hunting and fishing rights, factionalism, cultural preservation, taxation, and land rights.
