Work of the Bureau of Education for the Natives of Alaska. Bulletin, 1927, No. 6
Hamilton, William
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
Through its Alaska division, the United State Bureau of Education is developing and educating an aboriginal population of different races dwelling in widely varying regions and climates, many of whom require assistance in adjusting themselves to the new conditions with which civilization has confronted them. The problem involves both educating children and the uplifting of entire communities. The work includes the maintenance of schools, hospitals, and orphanages; the relief of destitution; the fostering of trade; the organization of cooperative business enterprises; the establishment of colonies; and the supervision of the reindeer industry. This bulletin describes transportation changes that have facilitated access for people and goods; the level of involvement of teachers in supplementing health care provided by the Bureau, developing industrial education programs, extension of medical services to more communities, the status of the reindeer industry, and the impact of the Bureau of Education's work on the native populations.
