Sim, R. Alex (1967). The Education of Indians in Ontario: A Report of the Provincial Committee on Aims and Objectives of Education in the Schools of Ontario. A Strathmere Study. In this 3-month study of aims and objectives for educating Canadian Indians in the Ontario schools, data were collected largely via secondary sources, field observation, and interviewing. It was found that the Ontario government has no policy directed specifically for Indian students; however, the federal government does have policies developed for registered Treaty Indians. In this report, these policies are described along with educational objectives and recommendations to provide for equality, accommodation, and autonomy for Ontario's Indian children.   [More]  Descriptors: Acculturation, American Indians, Attitudes, Civil Rights

Samuels, William M.; Buckner, Donald R. (1975). Minority Barriers Identification Conference (Arlington, Virginia, December 15-17, 1975). Final Report. Papers, workshop reports, and pertinent recommendations from a conference concerned with barriers faced by minorities seeking training in the allied health professions are presented. Data provided for the conference, gathered from Northeast, Southeast and Southwest United States during a 2-year period, related to barriers encountered by Black, Indian, and Spanish-surnamed students attempting to enroll in allied health professions in their geographical areas. These barriers were validated and placed under the major headings of need for financial assistance, need for role models, poor academic preparation and lack of tutorial services, lack of career information and counseling, and cultural and social gaps. Five priority recommendations for attacking the barriers were presented: (1) Initiation of a national comprehensive allied health manpower development program, (2) development and enforcement of a strategy to identify and remove culturally biased admissions criteria and procedures, (3) public or private capacitation resource for training centers based on completion of training programs and registration in a profession by minority students, (4) development and implementation of advocacy programs to overcome barriers to minority students entering the allied health professions, and (5) allied health traineeships that would include specific funding for ancillary clinical training costs. A listing of participants is appended. Descriptors: Access to Education, Accountability, Admission Criteria, Affirmative Action

Woods, Richard G.; Harkins, Arthur M. (1969). A Review of Recent Research on Minneapolis Indians: 1968-1969. Research conducted during 1968 and 1969 concerning the Minneapolis Indian population is examined in an attempt to describe their characteristics; their relationship to major urban institutions; their employment, health, and housing; and justice, public welfare, and public institutions as related to the Indian. Inequities in the relationship between the community and its Indian residents are examined. Three major problems are focused on in the report: (1) obtaining specific knowledge about urban Indians, (2) application of such knowledge, and (3) inadequate understanding and mistrust of agencies by the Indian. Suggestions are made to remedy these problems.   [More]  Descriptors: Academic Achievement, Adjustment (to Environment), Agencies, American Indians
