American Indian Arts & Crafts Center newsletter paste-up mechanical
Type of Work
This newsletter reaches out to people in the Portland, Oregon area to update on issues in the American Indian community that they can get involved with and that affect them. It was sent by The American Indian Arts & Crafts Center in Portland, Oregon.
This was acquired at an estate sale of a noted Portland bookseller.
A photo of the American Indian Arts & Crafts Center is included here too, but is at a different address than listed on the newsletter.
We would like the Indian Mothers to gather at the next meeting to join the American, Indian Mothers group. We are out to stop discrimination in schools where it does exist. Also to meet and talk to the youngsters in high school and grade school and to try to keep them interested in staying in school and completing their educations. Many of them lose interest due to lack of understanding and non-support from their own parents. ie. such as clothing, what they are doing and how they are doing. It is up to us to keep our children in school and if they are failing it is up to us to find out why and to do something about it. These and many more issues will be discussed. If you are interested, please come and join us.
The American Indian Youth Group will have a meeting December 1, 1968,on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 P.M. at the Indian Center, 734 E. Burnside. Coordinator, and your representative, will be a young lady who is very active in Indian activities and very proud of her Indian blood. She as well as her parents, Mr .&Mrs. Carl McLean, are well known for traveling the country and donating their summers to Boy Scouts, campfire group sand young people. It is important that they know and realize what the real Indian is like. The future of the American Indian depends upon the growth of the young Indian of today. Come out and support your Youth Center
INDIAN FAMILY MOVES TO CITY
The Elmo Eddy family has just recently moved here from Los Angeles. They have been telling us about the activities that go on at the Indian Center there. The participation there as far as Indians are concerned is great. They have many news letters that are put out through the Center and many actions taken on different issues concerning Indians. If other large cities can accomplish these things, I am sure that we can here in Portland. So come on out and remember ..... Your Indian First!
Some families are less fortunate than we are. The Indian Center has already helped a few families in need of food and clothing. We would like to continue to do so. Any donations of used clothing, household articles, canned food and/or staples would be appreciated. These articles can be dropped off at the Indian Center, 734 E. Burnside or be picked up by calling 235-9784.
