Nebraska Indian Commission, Lincoln.
Emphasizing the improving status of the Nebraska American Indian, this second report (July-December 1972) of the Nebraska Indian Commission presents the following: (1) Commission Membership; (2) Record of Events (a chronological list of meetings, etc); (3) The Nebraska Indian Commission's Objectives, Research, and Achievements (emphasis on inter-agency coordination/cooperation/communication); (4) Activities (emphasis on the liaison role of the Commission); (5) Research Projects Identified by Objectives and Results in Housing, Education and Training, Welfare, Medical-Dental Care, Employment, Economic Development, and Legal Services (among the results reported are: need for more housing on all reservations; numerous educational programs now operative on all three reservations; Public Health Services available to reservation Indians but limited medical-dental services available to non-reservation Indians; lack of employment opportunities correlated with inadequate training, poor economic development, and outright discrimination); (6) A Comprehensive Review of the American Indian in Nebraska (a study revealing: there are 14,451 Nebraska Indians located primarily on reservations; the greatest unmet needs are among Indians in the rural northern and western areas of the State; the priority needs are self-determination, employment, and education).
