Description

This report, dated February 16, 1956, from the United States (US) Senate Committee on the Judiciary is a detailed report on what the committee identifies as the “special problem” of juvenile delinquency among Indigenous children. The report aims to identify what contributes to delinquency, what can be done to correct it, what legislative or administrative changes could improve it, and how can the public be better informed about it. The report summarizes several hearings that were held with different tribes, including tribes inhabiting North Dakota and Minnesota; the report also includes comparative studies, statements, speeches, statistics, and reports on different tribes located across the US.
