This is the January 27, 1993 hearing on "Bureau of Indian Affairs Reorganization--Part I," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Native American Affairs of the Committee on Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Bill Richardson: "It is appropriate that the first hearing of this subcommittee be on the reorganization of the BIA [Bureau of Indian Affairs] since it is the oldest bureaucracy in the United States and one of the most maligned by Indian tribes. In the fall of 1990, the BIA proposed its own reorganization plan. At that time, tribal leaders rejected the plan because the BIA had not consulted with them in its formulation. In the Appropriations Act of 1991, a task force to reorganize the BIA was established wherein representatives from the Interior Department and three representatives of each of the 12 BIA Area Office tribes would be represented. This report before the subcommittee today is the culmination of a 2-year effort." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Eddie F. Brown, Brian Wallace, Harold A. Monteau, Georgia George, and Bernie Teba.
