This is the May 1, 1975 hearing on "Indian Housing," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Indian Affairs of the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs. From the Opening Statement of James Abourezk: "The purpose of the hearing this morning is to receive testimony from those agencies whose responsibility it is to provide Indian people with decent housing. Similarly, the subcommittee has asked representatives of various national tribal organizations as well as several nonprofit groups who are experienced in Indian housing programs to present testimony here today regarding Indian housing in the United States. As I stated in my letter of invitation, I am particularly interested in obtaining for the record: (1) an assessment of the Indian housing need; (2) a discussion of the various agency and private market efforts to meet this need; (3) a determination of the factors which serve to make Indian housing among the worst, if not the worst, in the United States; and (4) an analysis of possible policy alternatives or suggestions for improving the Indian housing delivery system." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James Abourezk, Joseph Burstein, Gordon Cavanaugh, Ronald Froman, Joseph R. Hanson, Stuart James, Emery A. Johnson, Iliff McKay, Pail Reilly, George Rucker, Morris Thompson, and John Tiger.
