Summary Report of Fort Mojave Tribe Comprehensive Plan.
Calnimptewa, Gerald; And Others
Recognition of tribal attitudes and goals is considered to be a most important phase of the Fort Mojave Tribe Comprehensive Plan. Meetings with the tribal council, committees, and a household survey shows employment opportunities, education, transportation, and cultural awareness to be the key issues dominating the concerns of the people. Among the 659 tribal members, male employment is at 42 percent and underemployment at 48 percent. Tribal members want the land base used for "job creating activities." Vocational training and adult education programs are needed. Tribal members are concerned about the loss of the Mojave language and want the children to be more aware of their ancestors and culture. Specific tribal goals include utilization of large portions of tribal land for agriculture, possible construction of a gambling casino on Nevada lands, building of new access roads, construction of housing subdivisions, creation of a tribal museum at old Fort Mojave, and erection of a large shopping center. In addition to planning goals, this study gives detailed information on the Fort Mojave tribe by discussing population and employment statistics, land use, transportation systems, housing conditions, education, and environmental services. The appendix lists federal, state and local government officials and possible foundation grant sources. (DS)
