These are the December 3 and 4, 1975 hearings on the "Indian Law Enforcement Improvement Act of 1975," held before the Subcommittee on Indian Affairs of the U.S. Senate Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs. From the opening statement of James Abourezk: "This is an open public hearing to receive the views of witnesses from the Indian community on general jurisdictional issues and problems and S. 2010, the Indian Law Enforcement Improvement Act of 1975. I know of no other problems in the Indian field today that are as complex and difficult to resolve as those found in the area of jurisdictional concern in Indian country. Contributing to this dilemma is the tangle of overlapping or mutually exclusive jurisdictions--Federal, State and tribal--which govern law enforcement in Indian country." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Odric Baker, Ed Cline, Lucy Covington, Joe DeLaCruz, Roger Jim, Lewis LaRose, Max Mazzetti, Mel Tonasket, Joseph Ansera, Benny Atencio, Wendell Chino, Wayne Ducheneaux, Roland Johnson, Ernest Lovato, Frank Tenorio, and Bruce Townsend.
