Urban Indian Project.
Greymountain, Gus; And Others
The second of a 2 phase study, this project provided information for the non-Indian population about problems and needs of urban American Indians. Phase I (1971) discussed urban Indian experiences and trends; compared differences and highlighted issues of Indian urbanization. Phase II focused entirely on the urban Indian community. The thrust was aimed at determining the major topics and themes of importance in urban Indian life. Data was gathered primarily by interviewing. Over the 3 months of Phase II, 40 people were interviewed, including numerous organizations, agencies, and departments within the city and state government. Findings indicated that the state employment office does not have anyone to work directly with Indians. Statistics on Indians living in Metropolitan Phoenix were few. Some 7,000 Indians were arrested annually for charges such as drunk and disorderly, driving while intoxicated, and drinking under age. Other findings covered education, health, housing, and welfare. Six major recommendations were made, such as developing further social service programs in relationship with the existing Indian Center. (FF)
