"Education of Urban, Unenrolled, and Mobile Indians." A Position Paper.
English, Samuel F., Jr.
The problem of an American Indian not on a tribal roll is that he is not a legal ward of any particular tribe and is therefore ineligible for financial aid for educational purposes. The relocation program has moved Indians from reservations to urgan areas to encourage assimilation, further adding to the identity problem. Urban Indians are pressuring relocation centers for advanced educational opportunities, but resources are limited for higher education. Often Indian students are not provided with enough funds to complete a program they are encouraged to begin. Little information is available on the problems of urban Indians. Existing organizations such as the National Indian Youth Council should be contracted with to research Indian problems in all urban areas with large concentrations of Indian people. An Indian organization such as the United Scholarship Service should be contracted with to conduct an investigation of existing educational programs for Indian students to result in compilation and dissemination of information about opportunities for higher education.
