A Bibliography on Native American Child and Family Welfare.
Collinge, William B., Comp.
Compiled for social work students and human service workers concerned with Native American children and families, this bibliography cites 648 entries from the social science literature. Emphasis is on the problems of Native American children and families, the characteristics of their institutions, and the nature of the organized and informal networks that provide them with support and services. Citations represent those available through early 1982. They are arranged alphabetically by author and each is crossed-referenced to the topical index. Library of Congress call numbers, when available, are listed, and codes are provided for locating references in the University of California library system. The topical index lists some 200 topics followed by index numbers identifying the related entries in the bibliography. There are, for example, 6 entries listed under the topic of family planning, 44 under urban Indians, 3 under family law, and 5 under exceptional children. Topics include social and family problems, health issues, individual tribes, states, organizations, and specific legislation affecting American Indians. (JHZ)
