WASHINGTON (AP)-Hundreds of
American Indians are gathering near
Washington for the completion today of
what they call "The Longest Walk," a
3,000-mile march to protest
congressional proposals that they say
threaten their rights.
The march began Feb. 11 at Alcatraz
Island in San Francisco Bay, the scene
of an Indian occupation in 1969. The In-
dians were walking the last stretch
yesterday from a Maryland state park
near Baltimore to a national park just
outside the District of Columbia.
THEY PLAN to enter Washington
today, hold a rally, walk to the White
House and spend the night on the
Washington Monument grounds.
Demonstrations and workshops are
planned through July 23.
Clyde Bellecourt, a founder of the
American Indian Movement and coor-
dinator of the demonstration, said
about 1,000 persons are taking part.

Most are Indians, Bellecourt said, but
some white sympathizers have joined.
Among their principal targets-none
of which are given much chance of
passage this year-is the Native
American Equal Opportunities Act,
sponsored by Rep. John Cunningham
(R-Wash. ).
It directs the president to abrogate all
Indian treaties within a year, with the
Indians taking over reservation land
either individually or as municipal cor-
porations. Property taxes would be
phased in over 20 years.
About 80 per cent of the nation's roads
,and streets are paved today, compared
with 1921 whenonly 14 per cent of the
thoroughfares in the United States had
pavement, says the Motor Vehicle
Manufacturers Association.

question of that," she said.
Schacknow is confident that quotas or
the recent Bakke decision have no part
in the decision.
"I DON'T think it (affirmative ac-
tion) has anything to do with it. The
person who is replacing me is a white
male," Schacknow said.
The Kirkland College graduate, who
this year received a Master of Fine Arts
Degree from the University, said her
problem isn't unique, but that few ever
try to get the answers they want.
"It's a question for a lot of us (TAs),
who never have the guts to ask. There
are too many TAs who are cheated and
they nnever say a word," Schacknow

received letters, are out of town. Willis,
though out of town, said before he left
Thursday he was preparing a response
for Schacknow.
"I'm giving her an answer. It's being
prepared right now," Willis said. As of
late last night, however, Schacknow
had heard nothing.
GEO head Clark said yesterday that
he has talked with Schacknow, and that
he has not yet decided what action, if
any, to take.
"IHAVE not come across anything
like this before," Clark said. "We could
not, as a union, take any action." But
Clark said he will talk to a lawyer to,
check into all possibilities. "I don't

the way the thing was handled. She
(Schacknow) was not informed. There
was no due process. She did not receive
anything written from the University at
all," Clark said.
Joseph Katulic, administrator of the
Graduate Student Assistantship
Programs, said he wasn't familiar with
Schacknow's case. However, he said
that he doubted Schacknow could take
the University to court for not giving
her a reason for not rehiring her.
KATULIC added that in most job
rejections, University officials make
clear the reasons behind the decisions.
"In most instances, the departments
try to explain what the situation is in-
volving inability to provide support,"
Katulic said.
Schacknow, who will work with
delinquent children this year, said she
does not intend to take legal action. "I
don't have the means to file a lawsuit,"
she said.
DESPITE HER inquiries, Schacknow
doesn't expect a quick answer to her.
"It's going to be a long time untilI get
a response. They (University officials)
will want totblow it over quietly. It's
political," Schacknow said, referring to
a desire for University faculty to avoid
dissent within their departments.
But even if she does receive a reply,
Schacknow' doesn't believe it will
justify the decision.

can satisfy me. Whatever Edgar Willis
