Indians in Montana. Montana Economic Study-Staff Study.
Montana Univ., Missoula. Bureau of Business and Economic Research.
The three papers in this publication discuss American Indians in Montana. "Indian Poverty in Montana: Findings of the 1960 Census" examines data pertaining to the Indians' economic background. Income data, derived from 25 percent of the population, reports income received in 1959 from: (1) wages, salaries, commissions, and tips; (2) "own business, professional practice, partnership or farm"; and (3) social security, pensions, veterans' payments, rent (minus expenses), interest and dividents, unemployment insurance, welfare payments, and "any other sources." The assimilation of American Indians into the larger white American society is discussed in "American Indians in the Melting Pot,""Indian Culture and Industrialization" covers Indian cultural traits, the Western factory system and some changes in the factory organization, and implications for factories employing Indian labor. The Yankton Plant (electronics) on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota is an example of a successful factory which incorporates some of these changes. (NQ)
