The Well-Being of American Indian Children in Minnesota: Economic Conditions

A Report Prepared for the American Indian Research and Policy Institute by The Urban Coalition, Census Project. May, 1994.

Introduction

The American Indian Research and Policy Institute organized its May 1994 conference around longstanding concerns about the well-being of children and youth within the community. Education, culture, families, the Indian Child Welfare Act, and juvenile justice were discussed throughout the day.

Underlying these issues is a depression-like economic situation in many parts of the American Indian community. This report summarizes what census data tell us about American Indian children, with particular attention to the economic conditions within Indian families and communities. An appendix contains non-census data related to this topic. (Further information on American Indians living in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan area can be found in another Urban Coalition report, "Profiles of Change: Communities of Color in the Twin Cities Area.")
