This Land Is Our Land: The American Indian in American Society, 1970.
Episcopal Church, New York, NY. National Committee on Indian Work.
In February 1969, the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church established a National Committee on (American) Indian Work (NCIW). This was in keeping with the General Convention of the Episcopal Church's policy of supporting self-determination among the poor and the powerless in American society. This document is the NCIW's analysis of the situation of the American Indian. The committee has 10 Indian members, elected in 1969 by 5 regional conferences of Indians related to the Episcopal Church in: the Great Lakes area, the Northern Plains, the Northwest, the Southwest, and Alaska. There were also 5 bishops whose dioceses include significant Indian populations. Major topics were: identity of an Indian, culture and value contrast, Indians in society, churches' relationship to Indians and Eskimos, Indian isolation, Indian situation today, rural and urban Indians, problems of Indian youth, and a few general observations of the Indian's situation today.
