Recommendations Concerning Employment, Income, and Educational Opportunities for the Seminole and Miccosukee Tribes in Florida. Final Ecological Report.
Nicholas, James C.; Kersey, Harry A., Jr.
A part of the South Florida Environmental Project sponsored by the U.S. Department of Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs, this project commenced on July 1, 1971, and ended on December 31, 1972. Phase I provided a comprehensive history of Seminole and Miccosukee Indian tribal development; Phase II produced an overall view of the growth of the South Florida region and the potential impact on Indians in the area. In Phase III, which is reported in this paper, the research team concentrated on estimating present and future employment and income opportunities for the tribes, as well as a general reservation land use forecast to the year 2000. To assist the tribes in developing economic and educational plans, development plans for South Florida lands abutting the reservation areas, including the possible location of a jetport, were given. Additionally, a set of general educational recommendations was prepared for the tribes to develop programs for school aged children, adult education, and vocational-technical training. (KM)
