This directory provides information relative to the incorporated Native American villages of Alaska and the American Indian reservations of mainland U.S. There are approximately 170 Alaskan entries which identify the name of the Native American corporation, its address, the number of villages incorporated, population number, racial distribution, and land status. Each of the some 400 entries on the American Indian reservations include the following items of information: (1) reservation name; (2) county and state location; (3) tribal name; (4) address of tribal headquarters; (5) population number; (6) land status; (7) a brief history; (8) a brief cultural sketch; (9) tribal government; (10) tribal economy; (11) climate; (12) transportation (in terms of accessability); (13) community facilities; and (13) vital statistics (population of Indians residing on or adjacent to reservation, labor force, employment vs unemployed, and average educational level when identifiable). Reference is also made to recreational activities in some entries. Population data is derived from the Bureau of Indian Affairs' 1969-1973 census figures. (JC)
