Arizona Commission of Indian Affairs 1979-1980 Annual Report.
Arizona Commission of Indian Affairs, Phoenix.
Designed to provide insight into the proceedings, transactions, and findings of the Arizona Commission of Indian Affairs, this 1979-80 annual report reflects the Commission's efforts to act in a liaison capacity between tribes and state government and to provide tribes with technical assistance. The report describes 17 projects completed during the year and lists 22 instances of technical assistance provided, as well as 5 publications, including a Tribal Directory. Named as highlights of the year are the seventh Annual Indian Town Hall Conference (on the control of natural resources) and the Indian Employment Within State Government Demonstration Project. The Indian Employment Project report recommends that State agencies recruit and qualify more Indians in an effort to better reflect the State's ethnic composition, and also lists some differences in cultural values and behavior patterns of Indians and non-Indians. A profile of the Quechan Tribe describes its historical background, culture, tribal government, and tribal administration. The profile includes information on the tribal zoning and planning commission, land and housing, economic development, an environmental farm project, recreational activities, educational problems and programs, and programs administered by the Administration for Native Americans. The report includes demographic information on Arizona tribes, a map of the reservations, and a financial report. (CM)
