This directory lists 160 organizations in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, as well as national organizations that provide educational resources for American Indians. Few American Indians live in Arkansas and Louisiana, but Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico rank among the top 10 states in terms of Native American population. The vast majority of American Indian students attend public schools. The first section of the directory lists national associations, organizations, Indian Education Technical Assistance Centers, and multifunctional resource centers based in the five-state region. The remainder of the directory lists organizations by state. Listings include government and government-funded agencies; tribes and tribal organizations; American Indian centers and organizations; associations and other private organizations; schools and organizations that serve schools; postsecondary institutions and related organizations; media and technology; and museums, monuments, and parks. Most entries include address, contact person, and a brief description of the organization's objectives and services. Contains a list of seven native education initiative publications and five references. (LP)
