Woods, Richard G.; Harkins, Arthur M.
The National Council on Indian Opportunity visited 5 major cities in 1968-69 for the purpose of holding hearings about the problems of urban Indians with a view toward stimulating remedial Federal Government and local community action. This report organizes the urban Indian concerns and characteristics evidenced during the hearings which had to do with multiple problems of adaptation to the city. The report emphasizes the needs, inadequacies, and problems in the areas of housing, information and communication, health and medical care, law, social activity and recreation, and social services. Much is included in the way of direct quotations from the testimony of Indian witnesses. Related documents are ED 051 949, ED 051 950, ED 052 872, and ED 052 873. (JH)
