Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs.
These meetings of the American Indian Policy Review Commission were concerned with the markup of various sections of the final report, some sections having to do with Indian law, Indian history, Indian education, Alaska Natives, and funding of Indian programs. On February 25, there was a discussion of education recommendations including one on the consolidation of Indian education programs into a consolidated Indian agency. Another recommendation was directed at the real adjustment of the funding mechanism on Indian education money. Four specifics were included in this recommendation: (1) the authorization of a tribal monitoring system through which impact aid would be passed through to the local tribes with a settlement of administrative expenses to have some influences on the education of Indian children; (2) an amendment to the Indian Self-Determination Act, which would authorize an elected board of regents representing many tribes to administer certain types of institutions; (3) amendments to Public Law 93-638 and the Johnson-O'Malley Act; and (4) action for the proper utilization of Johnson-O'Malley Act funds.
