Indian Education. Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, 95th Congress, 1st Session on H.R. 9158 - To Provide for Grants to Tribally Controlled Community Colleges, and For Other Purposes (October 13, 1977).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The purpose of H.R. 9158 is to provide grants for the operation and improvement of tribally controlled community colleges to insure continued and expanded educational opportunities for Indian students. The Secretary of the Interior is authorized to make grants into the general operating funds of tribally controlled community colleges to defray the expense of activities related to education programs for Indian students. Recognition is made of previous efforts by the Navajo Tribe and the Congress for Navajo Community College and special provisions are established for that institution. Testimony discloses support for H.R. 9158 because previous legislation has not met the need. Testimony is provided by representatives from the College of Ganado, the American Indian Higher Education Consortium, Navajo Community College, Navajo Tribal Council, National Congress of American Indians, National Indian Education Association, Fort Berthold College Center, and Sinte Gleska College.
