TOTHDAY, JUNB IS, 1980 BLYTHKVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS SeveralThousand Try to be Indians Current Census Brings Up Names of Tribes Heretofore Unknown ^ By CLARKE BEACH WASHINGTON — Tens or thou•ands of pe-»ona in states along the Atlantic ^aboard are trying to get the federal government to recognize them ** Indiana. This U the estimate of W. H. Gilbert of the Legislative Reference Service of the Library of cong.'e&s, who has made a study of the subject. The current census, ,he says, probably will produce the names of many tribe* ttldom heard of before. One new question'to be asked in communities where there is mixed blood concerns what Indian tribe, If any * person belongs to. The Western Indian tribes are Veil known. Nearly all of them were investigated and cataloged many years ago when the government enrolled the Indian population. AH Indians so enrolled, anc their descendents, have been entitled to various forms of fedora assistance—education, medical care farm guidance and so forth. That's *hat the Eastern Indians now H'ould like to get. They have' been largely fgnorcc up to now because they had neve had any formal dealings with tin federal government. Most of th Western Indians gained certain rffits through treaties. But th Extern rednian had dealt with Mi colonial governments, and thei status had been pretty well settlei by the time the federal govern ment was established. One little lost tribe Is soon to j have its tiay In Congress.' Companion bills have been introduced by Rep. poulson (R-Calif.) and Rep. Bosone (D-Utah) to grant recognition, in effect, to the Waccamaw Indians of North Carolina. They have Introduced their bills at the request of James Evans Alexander, a Los Angeles banker and scholar who has made a. study of the tribe. The move Is sponsored also by the Association on American Indian Affairs. The Waccamaws comprise 70 families who have remained pretty well hidden throughout American history in the Green Swamp, This is & practically impenetrable Wilderness about 37 miles from Wilmington, N. C. It Is sub-tropical, filled with blacfc bear, deer, alligators, rattlesnakes and water moccasins. Alexander says it's the only area In North America where you find a flesh-eating plant. This Is the Venus-flytrip, which Is fnsect- ivorouj. The Waccamaws for decades have been stoically resisting efforts of surrounding citizens to classify thun aa Negro., The fight has rdfl&tered mainly on the question of stKool facilities. County officials have been' trying' to force them to accept Negro teachers and Negro designation. At present, however, they do have a four-room school, giving instruction through the eighth grade, which Is calssificc as Indian. One scrap occurred during the war, when a Selective Service Board tried to Induct six Waccamaw youth* under the classification o Negroes. They refused to be Inducted as anything but Indians, PAGE FIFTEEN Woman Sues Uncle For Divorce; Judge Sees Need /or So/omon CLEVELAND. June 13.
