An interdepartmental program
leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree
in American Indian Studies may exist
at the University of Minnesota by fall
A proposal for such a program is
being written and evaluated by a 15
member committee to be appointed
this week by Fred Lukermann,
assistant vice president for academic
administration. One third of the
members are Indian students. Not all
the members have been notified of
their membership yet, Lukermann
Lukermann said the committee
would probably finish writing a
proposal spring quarter, and its
recommendations could probably be
implemented by fall quarter.
MEMBERS, LUKERMANN said,
will be asked to write a proposal
answering three questions.
The first question deals with the
tentative curriculum package and the
faculty who will teach it. Results from
a present survey of cross cultural
courses being carried on present
survey of cross cultural courses being
carried on now for a task force
created by University President
Malcolm Moos may help in answering
this question, Lukermann said.
The second question deals with
registration and admission into the
program, and the third with control
over the program by teachers and
The committee's proposal will
probably be presented at the meeting
of the three CLA divisional councils

natural sciences in May, Lukermann

Lukermann agreed. "The role of the
Indian in American society is pretty
well underplayed and understated
today," he said.
Craig, who is half Indian, said that
one impetus for the creation of tha
program is the small number of Indian-centered
or related courses on
CRAIG MENTIONED three Genera!
College courses: Minnesota History,
to which material relating to both In
dians and blacks has been adde ':
Literature 29C, dealing with ethnic
literature and music; and Men an I
Siciety 41B, which is devoted largely
to the Indian and poverty.
The proposed program would be in
terdepartmental in nature rather th -n
departmental, so a program rath"
than a department would be created
Another impetus behind the pro
gram, Craig said, is tne multitude
of problems in Indian-white relation
which occur because whites have
never been exposed to Indians.
He started meeting with Lukermann
