Presentation of Clyde Warrior, President, National Indian Youth Council

n.p. [the Council], 1967. 4p., 8.5x11 inch mimeographed sheets stapled together at upper left corner, very good. Dated February 6, 1967.

Warrior, who had taken part in the March on Washington, was a prominent speaker on Indian self-determination at the time. Here he suggests that government funds meant to improve the conditions of Native Americans be given directly to tribes to determine for themselves what "improvement" means within their cultural context. This statement, delivered at the Memphis poverty commission hearings, is discussed at some length in "Clyde Warrior: Tradition, Community, and Red Power" by Paul R. McKenzie-Jones, beginning on page 115.
