Report on Urban and Rural Non-Reservation Indians (Task Force Eight: Urban and Rural Nonreservation Indians). Final Report to the American Indian Policy Review Commission. Committee Print.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The result of a 12-month investigation of rural and urban nonreservation American Indian needs, this report is the final product of a task force assigned by the American Indian Policy Review Commission to: (1) examine statutes and procedures for granting Federal recognition and extending services to American Indians; (2) collect and compile data re: the extent of present and projected Indian needs; (3) explore the feasibility of alternative elective bodies to facilitate maximum decision making participation. Included in this report are: the executive summary of findings and recommendations; task force methodology (contact with 167 urban Indian organizations, 12 regional hearings, and a need classification including 18 broad subject areas); an historical review of the Indian and Federal government relationship; a legal review (emphasis on authorizing services to nonreservation Indians); a social needs assessment (employment; education; housing; health; frequently mentioned need areas--legal services, adoption, elderly care, alcoholism counseling, facilities, transportation; the Indian Center; rural nonreservation; and Indian poverty levels and income characteristics); exploration of alternative elective bodies (an independent Indian agency to manage Federal funding and services and councils of off-reservation advisors for the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Indian Health Service).
