President Wayne L. Ducheneaux
announced today.
The action by the NCAI Execu
tive Committee after seven months
of major change in the organiza
tion's administration, brings to an
end a period in which the NCAI
has been on the brink of closing
because of financial problems.
Kingman served as interim direc
, tor over this time and is largely
credited with NCAI's survival,
Ducheneaux stated in making the
announcement at the NCAI's Mid

Statement of
Governor Neil Goldschmidt
June 22, 1990
"The listing of the northern spot
ted owl as threatened will have a
significant adverse effect on the
economy of many Oregon com
munities. We must prevent that
impact from being devastating to
those communities and our states.
"While the United States Fish
and Wildlife Service has listed the
owl, based on what they believe to
be the best available science, we do
not believe the Jack Ward
Thomas report is the only biologi
cally sound plan for protecting the
owl.
"Oregonians have led this coun
try's environmental movement.
Time and again we have demon
strated that we can protect the
environment without destroying our
economic base.
"I believe Oregonians, their state
government, and their congres
sional delegation need to be con
structively engaged in seeking solu
tions which protect the owl. We
believe a sound recovery plan can
be devised without the devastating
impacts that will result if the Jack
Ward Thomas plan is adopted for
federal, state and private lands.
"Reductions in timber harvest are
already underway as a result of the
new forest plans which have been,
and will be, adopted. To add the
impact of the Thomas report is
simply unacceptable.
"What we need to work toward
is a congressionally enacted solu
tion which protects some old growth
forests for owl and other wildlife.

has ended a period of uncertainty
for the organization's future. Fol
lowing the NCAI's 46th Annual
Convention in Oklahoma City last
fall, she was appointed interim
director to oversee a total change
in the staff and administration of the
NCAI. Faced with some formida
ble financial problems, Kingman
organized a Management Review
Team and recruited volunteer pro
fessional staff to assist in the recon
struction and rebuilding of the
NCAI which enabled the organiza
tion to keep its doors open.
In a "State of the NCAI" report
to the executive Council at its Feb
ruary 1990 meeting, Kingman
stated that income from member
ships, donations, and grants had
dropped to such a low by October
1989 that the NCAI's debts vs.
income showed a deficit of $298,
621.10 dollars. The biggest single
creditor was the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) for $80,000. Recon
structing financial records was crit

poses and which allows timber
harvest to move ahead in areas not
designated for protection without
endless legal appeals and adminis
trative delays. We need to enact the
log export ban on public lands,
eliminate substitution, and process
more timber in our mills rather
than overseas.

MOIHS receives grant
The Middle Oregon Indian His
torical Society has received a grant
from the Occidental Petroleum
Corporation for $25,000 according
to Delbert Frank, the Soceity's
chairman. The award was made by
Occidental Petroleum to support
the construction costs of the new
tribal museum.
The grant coincided with the
museum's groundbreaking cerem
ony which was held June 3, 1990.
Dr. Ray. R. Irani, President and
CIO of Occidental Petroleum, con
veyed the corporation's contribu
tion and support for the project in
a letter to Governor Victor Atiyeh,
one of the Society's board members.
The total amount committed to
the project from ail sources is now
$3,926,000, according to Dr. Duane
King, MOIHS Executive Director.
To date, all grant proposals which
have been submitted have either
been funded or are still pending.

to achieve the NCAI's financial
stability and maintain cash liquid
ity under extreme financial duress.
Kingman told the Mid-year con
ference at Fairbanks that a new
computerized accounting system
has been installed, all accounts
have reconstructed for 1989, and
the Congress and NCAI Fund are
now in audit status. The draft audit
report is to be presented to the
NCAI's Executive Committee meet
ing in Fairbanks this week.
Formerly the president of the
Cheyenne River Sioux Commun
ity College on her reservation in
South Dakota, Kingman comes to
the NCAI with over 15 years of
senior level management experi
ence. She has been the director of
two national Indian organizations,
a principal, school superintendent,
program manager and an elemen
tary and junior high school teach
er. Kingman's savvy about the pol

D.C., a critical part of her job,

involvement in the forest planning
process, I believe we can play a
constructive role in developing,
and minimizing the impact of, a
biologically sound old growth pro

management agencies to give us
the opportunity to work with them
and offer out suggestions before
adopting implementation plans.
