Minhas, Jasjit; And Others
Developed as a result of the project, Strategies for Linking Vocational Education Programs to Tribal Economic Plans, the guide contains information obtained from 20 tribes who are currently providing vocational education programs under the One Percent Set-Aside Federal Vocational Education funding, a program that provides the opportunity for Indians to tailor their vocational training programs to the human resource needs of the economic development of their tribes. The guide identifies tribally owned enterprises; projects tribal economic development and tribal vocational education programs; considers training in tribal economic plans, procedures used for determining future occupational and employment needs, outstanding features of existing linkages and obstacles that could hamper or prevent linkages; and recommends strategies for avoiding or overcoming obstacles to good linkages. Tribes represented include Papago Tribe, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indians, Bay Mills Indian community, Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Fort Belknap Indian community, Northern Cheyenne Tribe, Winnebago Tribe, Omaha Tribe, Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, Alamo and Ramah Navajo Bands of Indians, Seneca Nation, Devils Lake Sioux Tribe, Three Affiliated Tribes, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, Kickapoo Tribe, Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, and Nooksack Indian Tribe.
