Notes:
The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) is a major American Indian advocacy organization, designed to serve as a link between tribal governments and the United States government. NCAI was founded in 1944, in Denver, CO, as a membership organization for "persons of Indian blood." In 1955, group membership was limited to recognized tribes, committees, or bands. The organization is overseen by an Executive Council, which selects a five-member Executive Committee and an Executive Director. The Executive Director is then responsible for managing the organization's staff and overseeing its initiatives and everyday operations. Since 1944, NCAI has held annual conventions in the fall to elect officers and pass resolutions, which become the basis for the organization's policy positions. Beginning in 1977, a mid-year conference in May or June was added to provide further opportunities for in-depth exploration of issues
Since its inauguration, NCAI has worked on a wide variety of issues facing Indians in the US. Some of those issues include voting rights, land claims, education, economic development, natural resource protection and management, nuclear waste, repatriation, and government-to-government relations with the federal government. In 1954, NCAI organized an emergency conference to protest the US government's newly-announced termination policy. NCAI has also frequently worked closely with other Indian organizations, such as the Native American Rights Fund and National Tribal Chairmen's Association, and with various government bodies, such as the Bureau of Indian Affairs and Indian Health Service
Summary:
The NCAI records document the organization's work, particularly that of its office in Washington, DC, and the wide variety of issues faced by American Indians in the twentieth century. The bulk of the material relates to legislation, lobbying, and NCAI's interactions with various governmental bodies. A large segment also concerns the annual conventions and executive council and executive committee meetings. Finally, the records also document the operations of the NCAI, including personnel, financial, and fundraising material. The collection also includes the records of two of NCAI's Executive Directors, Charles E. "Chuck" Trimble (1972-1977) and Suzan Shown Harjo (1984-1989). Included are correspondence, publications, reports, administrative records, photographs, and audio and video recordings

Notes:
Sol Tax was trained and has taught at the University of Chicago. His dissertation on Fox social organization was based on field work at the Mesquakie settlement at Tama, Iowa, in 1932-1934
Sol Tax began the Fox Project to provide field experience to anthropology students at the University of Chicago (1948-1953). During the first season, the students conducted inquiries into Fox social organization and leadership. This led them to suspect that the Tama settlement was threatened with internal dissension brought on by outside pressures of the white community. When they decided to interfere in the ongoing process, the students and Tax were confronted with the fact that they were only students and had no real authority to enforce changes. In response to this situation, Tax and the students developed a theoretical framework for action that has come to be known as action anthropology. The students also began discussing approaches to the problems they perceived while they were studying the Fox. In consultation with the Fox, the group devised a plan of action and obtained money from a private foundation in 1953. At this time, students and faculty from the University of Iowa joined the University of Chicago group. The Fox Project was largely educational in its conception but over time it came to include economic and social aspects. Several educational efforts were made including the Fox Indian Professional Education Program. They helped to establish a community center; sought a clinic; and launched a crafts industry (Tama Indian Crafts)
