Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs.
Presenting congressional testimony regarding Senate Bill 1789 and Senate Bill 2046, these hearings include the texts of each bill and the statements of 12 witnesses. S. 1789 is described as a bill designed to amend the Act of August 27, 1935 (49 Statute 887) by extending the authority of the Secretary of the Interior to contract with the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District on behalf of the six Pueblo Indian tribes served by that district for operation and maintenance charges assessed against these tribes. S. 2046 is described as a bill designed to consolidate the many recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribal villages, groups, and local non-profit corporations into 12 regional nonprofit corporations for Indian Self-Determination Act contracting and other purposes (the present language in the Indian Self-Determination Act recognizes 450 separate entities for contracting purposes, making efficient implementation of Public Law 93-638 and other acts very difficult). Representative testimony is presented for: Alaska Federation of Natives; Kuskowin Native Association; the Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Indian Affairs; North Slope Borough (Barrow); Association of Village Council Presidents; Bering Straits Native Association; Tlingit and Haida Indians; Cook Inlet Native Association; Angoon Indian Reorganization Act Council; Kootznoowoo, Incorporated, Angoon; Bureau of Indian Affairs; and Southwest Alaska Indian Reorganization Act Councils.
