The Memramcook Conference of North American Indian Young People (Memramcook, New Brunswick, July 1969).
Teaching and Research in Bicultural Education, Inc., Princeton, ME.
A meeting of over 100 American Indian and non-Indian young people and adults from the eastern United States and Canada is described in this publication. Significant events of the 6-day conference (keynote talks, discussions, question-and-answer sessions, etc.) are reported in order to show the evolution of ideas, changes in attitude and behavior, thoughts, feelings, and creative energy and determination of today's young Indian men and women. Discussion of the concept of an all-Indian school directed by Indians is emphasized, and plans for continuing study of such a project are reported as the major accomplishment of the conference. A summary of 30 preconference questionnaires on the feasibility of the all-Indian school and a summary of responses to the postconference evaluation sheet are included. (PS)
