Meriam Report on Indian Administration and the Survey of Conditions of the Indians in the U.S. (Gale)


This collection comprises two sets of documents that details 40 years of failed U.S. government policies that deeply harmed indigenous communities. The first is the full text of the report entitled The Problem of Indian Administration, better known as the Meriam Report. The second comprises the 41-part report to the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs detailing the conditions of life and the effects of policies and programs enacted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs on Native Americans.
