Economic Development in Indian Reservations in New Mexico. Final Report from the Seminar (Albuquerque, New Mexico, May 4-5, 1979).
Margolin, David, Ed.; Ortiz, Roxanne Dunbar, Ed.
Proceedings from a seminar on economic development for American Indian reservations include reports on panel discussions and an analysis of a questionnaire responded to by 113 Indian seminar participants. The report on Session One, "Traditional Indian Economies in New Mexico: Values," covers a discussion on traditional roles and patterns which have affected Indian economic development; proceedings from Session Two, "Indian Economic Development and the Role of Experts," discuss an apparent lack of communication and coordination between Indian governments and outside experts in dealing with economic decisions within communities; the summary of Session Three, "New Mexico State Legislation and Its Effects," deals with Indian rights and sovereignty which are affected by political and governmental influence; and the recording of Session Four, "Federal Trust Obligations and Conflicts of Interest," narrates concerns on issues of development on reservations in which the federal government is involved. A report on the concluding session covers discussions of various topics of interest and concern which were not covered during the four seminar panels. Five major concerns emerged from an analysis of the questionnaire responses: local input into planning; general knowledge; effectiveness of experts and planning; control of development and planning; and development.
