Meetings of the American Indian Policy Review Commission (Washington, D.C. and Portland, Oregon, June 4, August 10, and September 25, 1976). Volume 3.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs.
The purpose of the American Indian Policy Review Commission hearing on June 4, 1976, was to give the Commissioners an opportunity to hear each task force restate and clarify relevant issues and preliminary recommendations. Two points that emerged from the session were: the need for a specific process whereby the Federal Government recognizes tribes and the noninvolvement of the Federal Government in defining who is and is not an Indian (this should be left up to the tribes). One major objective of Task Force No. 2 was to define clearly the relationship between the federal government and Indian tribes, including the political status of Indian tribal governments commensurate with the views of Indian people across the country. One spokesman reviewed the main obstacles of economic development; an example is when reservation resources are developed by others the proceeds are then siphoned off by state taxation. The meeting held in Portland, Oregon, covered the controversy of hunting and fishing rights and several court cases concerned with the controversy. (AN)
