Jewish Group Aids Rehabilitation of Minnesota Indians

Thirty-four Minnesota Indians
have received four days of ori-
entation recently in vocational
and trade schools, colleges and
potential sources of employ-
ment in the Twin Cities in a
unique project, now in its
eighth year, to rehabilitate
these native Americans.
Eight years ago, Jobs for
Minnesota Indians was initiated
in the offices of the Jewish
Community Relations Council
of Minnesota by the Jewish
Labor Committee representa-
tives in the area. The JCRC
provided use of the office, staff
and supplies until August 1962

when civic-minded people here
started the American Indian
Employment and Guidance Cen-
ter. More than 200 Indians have
been placed in jobs.
Seven years ago, in coopera-
tion with organized labor in St.
Paul, the Jewish Labor Com-
mittee organized the project to
bring Indian students who are
seniors in high school near In-
dian reservations to the Twin
Cities for orientation.
Labor unions contribute the
money and the work on this
project is done in the office
of the JCRC by their staff and
the Jewish Labor Committee
staff. Of the 37 students brought

to the Twin Cities in 1962, 36
went on to college.
Another JLC-sponsored effort
is "Operation Vegetable Gar-
dens" to encourage the 700 fam-
ilies on the Redlake Reserva-
tions to grown theoir own vege-
tables. Some 70 families took
part in the first effort, in co-
operation with the state's Agri-
cultural Extension Service.
,Other work by the JLC for
the Indians includes rehabilita-
tion of Indian parolees, pro-
viding legal counsel, providing
centralization of debts through
Jewish credit unions to pay off
creditors garnisheeing Indian
