Self-determination for the Choctaw tribal government and its people was reflected in the progress made in program development. Programs in effect during fiscal year (FY) 1973 covered the full range of economic and social needs of the Choctaw people. Designed to complement the progress achieved during FY 1972, the following four developmental priorities were outlined for tribal attention and action: (1) tribal government reorganization plan--complete implementation along with staff training programs; (2) achievement of Tribal Council community development objectives--concentration on problem areas in manpower, economic, community development, health, and educational needs; (3) industrial and tourism development--attraction of reservation-based industry and formulation of a comprehensive tourism plan; and (4) reservation development-tribal government action plan--a four-year plan for action which included a schedule for acquisition, by contract, of programs and services historically channeled through the Choctaw Agency, Bureau of Indian Affairs. This report documented the progress toward self-determination achieved during FY 1973. Information is given on the: Choctaw tribal government reorganization, program development, economic development, and Choctaw-Federal-State-local program coordination. (NQ)
