The 1971 Indian Education Training Institute culminated in a 4-day conference attended by American Indian scholars, tribal administrators, and students concerned with education of Indians in the Northwest. This document contains a verbatim record of the proceedings in addition to an evaluation of the program. Recommendations are made (1) to improve Indian education in reservation and near-reservation elementary and secondary schools; (2) to meet the needs of Indian students in higher education; and (3) to plan for the use of Pacific Northwest Indian Center (PNIC) materials. It is noted that 3 follow-up activities are in progress to implement these recommendations: a committee is investigating possibilities for Indian educational programs in area institutions of higher education to move forward on the basis of concepts developed during the institute; a committee is studying Indian involvement in PNIC; and faculty and administrative personnel in area institutions of higher education are reviewing their own programs. The major part of this report, the record of the proceedings, deals with such topics as textbooks, the role of PNIC, Federal projects for Indians (e.g., Johnson-O'Malley), educational needs, curriculum, teacher training, guidance and counseling, and means by which Indians can force needed changes in various institutions.
