Title

The Integration of Americans of Indian Descent

Abstract

The place of Indians in American society may be seen as one aspect of the question of the integration of minority groups into the social system. Only by maintenance of freedom for cultural variation can a heterogeneous society keep conflict at a minimum; individual freedom is a widely shared cultural value. Integration means a unity that permits differences and opposes only differences that lead to discipline conflicts. It implies full equality in health services and in educational, political, and economic opportunity among all groups. In asking what shall be the place of Indians in American society, the authors give an analysis of the conditions that favor or hamper integration.
