The study brings together in one work a brief history of American Indian policy in the United States for the use of students, teachers, government employees, and the general reader. More detail has been supplied for the period since 1930 to enable the reader to see the processes involved in the adoption, administration, and eventual changes in Indian policy. The center of attention has been the development and changes of policy. Historical information concerning the Bureau of Indian Affairs (bia), and general history has been supplied only as necessary to understand the policy changes. The 10 chapters cover: the nature of Indian policy; the Indian and the European; treaties and Indian trade; tribal removal and concentration westward; reservations for Indian tribes; allotments to individual Indians; tribal reorganization; Indian relocation and tribal termination; Indian policy and American life in the 1960's; self determination through Indian leadership, 1968 to 1972; and Indian policy goals for the early 1970'S. The bibliography includes general reference works, unpublished materials, government documents, bia publications, books, newspapers, and periodical literature. The appendix gives dates significant in the development of Indian policy and administrators of U.S. Federal Indian policy from 1789 to the present. (Km)
