20 p. 

Among the major concerns of the Women's Bureau are the special needs of women of various racial and ethnic backgrounds who encounter double discrimination because of their sex and their racial or ethnic origin. For those who speak English as a second language, a further barrier is added. American Indian women are one group in need of special programs to create an awareness of their job rights and to increase the accessibility of employment and training opportunities for them. In response to a successful conference on "Employment Awareness for Indian Women" held on the Shiprock, New Mexico, Navajo Reservation, this guide has been prepared to aid in conducting similar projects elsewhere. While not intended to be a comprehensive "how-to" instrument, the guide is adapted to the status of Indian women and highlights those parts of the conference program needing special consideration: strong community participation in planning phases, an opening session speaker who is a known leader, availability of bilingual interpreters, minimal or no expense to participants, briefing sessions for resource people, and follow-up mechanisms. In planning such programs, it is essential to have a knowledge of the unique legal status of Indian tribes so that provision can be made to have that issue addressed. Situations and conditions vary from reservation to reservation, making flexibility and adaptability a major requirement for the use of this guide. (Author/NEC)
