This is the November 8, 1993 hearing titled "Indian Juvenile Detention Facilities," held before the House Subcommittee on Native American Affairs of the Committee on Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Bill Richardson: "We will focus today on a very troubling issue facing Indian tribes, the need for juvenile detention and rehabilitation facilities. [...] There are only five juvenile detention facilities in all of Indian country. [...] In all the facilities operated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, there is not one counselor, teacher, or social worker. Because of a lack of program standards and a lack of adequate staff, many juveniles in these facilities are without access to adequate health care, educational services, counseling, and mental health services." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mary V. Thomas, Laura Yergan, Samuel N. Penney, Roleen L. Hargrove, Elmer Manatowa, Charles Fischer, Wyman Babby, and Johanna Clevenger.
