The Indian Today in New York State.
New York State Interdepartmental Committee on Indian Affairs, Albany.
The status of American Indians in the State of New York and the public services made available to them through various units of state government are outlined. For more than a century and one-half the State of New York, with Federal acquiescence, assumed responsibilities for Indian welfare corresponding to those undertaken by the Federal Government in states west of the Mississippi. Services in the areas of health, education, highways, social services, mental hygiene, and so on are rendered by the New York State departments in accordance with their regular functions and responsibilities. Included in the pamphlet are a summary of the responsibilities and services the state has voluntarily assumed toward its Indian inhabitants, a background of the Indians themselves, and a description of the social services administered by the State of New York toward its Indians. A bibliography and a list of Indian reservations and Indian officials are also furnished. A related document is ED 032 960. (FF)
