Summary

An informal coalition of the North American Indian Women's Association, the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women, and the Women's Bureau of the U.S. Department of Labor presented a two-day program in Shiprock, New Mexico, to provide employment awareness for Indian women. The July 24-25, 1975 program was attended by 200 Navajo and Hopi women who participated in a day of workshops which provided them with basic employment information (such as interviewing techniques, resume writing, employee rights, benefits awareness, and child care) and also provided each woman with answers to specific employment concerns. The second day was devoted to a panel consisting of an employee and an employer from all the major firms in the Farmington-Shiprock area. Employees responded to employer presentations of practices and problems regarding the employment of Indians, and both sought solutions to specific problems and concerns. Recommendations of conference attendees included the Bureau of Indian Affairs implementation of a paid Federal Women's Program coordinator at each agency on the reservation; the establishment of a youth center in the Shiprock area; and the building of an all-vocational school on the Navajo reservation.
