Building renovation
. ... j i... .1. t.:
An upcoming major renovation
of the Old Administration Build
ing has necessitated the move of
three tribal and three BIA depart
ments. All except one of the moves
will be temporary.
The OSU Extension Service,
Range and Agriculture, Branch of
Forestry, Land Operations and
Roads will all be relocated to the
seven mobile homes set up in the
k s from the Com
Jnunity Center. It is anticipated
these departrnents will be in the
. f 'hmlt fm,r months. Thev
will all return to their original
office space once the renovation
has been completed. Forestry will
occupy trailers one through three;
Roads will be in trailer four;
Extension will be in trailer five;
Land Operations will be in trailer
six and Range and Agriculture will
occupy trailer seven.
It will be a partial deja vu for
Spilyay Tymoo as the office is

office at the onset of the publica-
tion in 1976. The basement offers
more than three times tne space
and will allow for a separate layout
room and a special studio for por
traits. No decision has yet been
made as to which departments will
move into the office currently held
by Spilvav.
Three-fourths of the Old Admin
istration Building is currently main
tained by the BIA. and it is that
portion of the building that is being
modernized and renovated. The

Bureau budget reduced by $11 million
Interior Assistant Secretary for
Indian Affairs Ross Swimmer said
today the President's fiscal year
1988 budget request of $985 mil
lion forthc Bureau of Indian Affairs
(HI A) will enable the Bureau to
carry out its responsibilities to the
Indian people of this country and
still hold the line against increased
deficit spending.
The FY 1988 budget request for
the main operating account. Oper
ation of Indian Programs, totals
$910.2 million, about $11 million
less than the current 1987 estimate
or about a one percent reduction.
' With the budget request, the
Bureau is introducing a scries of
initiatives to "provide incentives
and opportunities for self-improvement
of both tribes and individual
Indians," Swimmer said. The four
major initiatives include: moving
education away from Bureau con
trol to local communities; an eco
nomic self-assistance self-help pro
gram that will reform the general
assistance grant program; increased
assistance to small tribes through
revenue sharing, and: control of
drug and alcohol abuse through
motivation and rehabilitation.
"These new initiatives are not
budget driven, but we are introduc
ing them in the budget process so
that we will have the remainder of
the current fiscal year to think
about them and formulate them
into final policy after input from
the tribes and from Congress."
Swimmer said. "Comments from
the tribes and the Congressional
hearing process will further shape
these programs."
Swimmer said the education mitia-
tives focus on the quahty of educa.
tion for Indian children and pro-
pose moving the management of
BIA schools to the tribal or state
school system.
"The Bureau has simply not been
doing a good job of educating
Indian children." Swimmer said.
"Despite the fact that the Bureau
spends more per student in its
schools than public and private
schools, test scores by McGraw
Hill reveal that by the time BIA
students reach the 12th grade, they
are over three years below the

national norm." He said that there
is need to get away from a system
that permits as many as five separ
ate school systems on a reservation
to vie for Indian student enrol
lment and where students move
from BI A, to tribal, to public, pri
vate and even to off-reservation
boarding schools. "Common sense
suggests that such a system is not
conducive to quality education,"
he added. The Bureau operates or
contracts for the operation of 181
schools in 23 states.
In its post-secondary schools,
Haskell Indian Junior College,
Lawrence, Kansas; Southwestern
Indian Polytechnic Institute, Albu
querque, New Mexico and; Insti
tute of American Indian Arts, Santa
Fe, New Mexico, the Bureau will
require students to pay a tuition of
approximately $850. Students cur
rently not paying any tuition are
eligible for all U.S. Department of
Education campus-based financial
aid as well as BIA higher education
grants. In the higher education
area, BIA will develop a program
in which recipients of higher edu
cation scholarships for post-graduate
studies will be required to serve in
either the BIA or their tribe after
graduation in order to receive col
lege grants. Such a "service obliga
' tion" requirement has worked sue- '
cessfully for the Indian Health
Another initiative proposes imple
mentation of an economic self
assistance self help program that
requires able-bodied recipients of
general assistance payments to work
or enter job training programs to
receive their grants. "We anticipate
that most of the jobs or training
programs would be in public ser
vice, building and repairing homes.

laying water lines, sewers, and other
needed services on the reservation."
Swimmer said. The programs would
be similar to the Tribal Work Expe
rience Program (TWEP) currently
used by some tribes. Recipients
would receive some pay for their
work or training in addition to
their general assistance grant and
would eventually leave the "wel
fare" rolls. Tribes would have an
incentive for putting their members
in paying jobs by receiving a share
of the savings achieved due to a
decreasing percentage of grants paid
out in general assistance.
Swimmer said that the initiative
would combine the general assist
ance program ($66 million in 1 987);
employment assistance ($26 mil
lion), and; housing improvement
program (about $16 million). The
basic mission of the three programs
would not change, but would be
redirected to encourage and enable
self-assistance by Indian individuals.
Small tribes of from 150 to 1,500
tribal members would receive direct
funding to operate their tribal govern
ments under another initiative. The
current small tribes program funded
in FY 87 at $2.8 million would be
raised in FY 88 to $6.8 million with
expanded criteria of eligibility and
