An Examination of the 1968-1969 Urban Indian Hearings Held by the National Council on Indian Opportunity. Part III: Indian Self-Definitions.
Woods, Richard G.; Harkins, Arthur M.
"An interesting and perhaps significant aspect of Indian testimony during the urban hearings of the National Council on Indian Opportunity was the way in which Indian witnesses characterized Indian people. While the hearings did not specifically probe this area, occasional comments made during the course of testimony indicated that some Indian witnesses had clear perceptions of what it means to be Indian." This report organizes the urban Indian concerns and characteristics evidenced during the hearings which had to do with Indian self-definitions. Much in the way of direct quotations from Indian witnesses is included. (JH)
