A Quiet Crisis - This report details the failure of various U.S. governmental agencies to address the needs of Native Americans, discussing the mismanagement of Individual Indian Money trust accounts, Native American healthcare, housing needs, law enforcement and education. Although the education of Native Americans is the responsibility of the federal government, this report finds primary, secondary, special and higher education programs for Native American students are frequently underfunded or in some instances not funded at all and consequently tend to be inferior, denying Native American students the same educational opportunities that other American students enjoy. (U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, July 2003)...
