Brown, Eddie F., Sarah Hicks, and Miriam Jorgensen. 2002. Framing the Future: Trends that will Impact Indian Country's Social Welfare Systems. St. Louis: Kathryn M. Buder Center for American Indian Studies, George Warren Brown School of Social Work, Washington University.
This paper is offered in support of our recommended process. It presents six trends that we believe will underlie and affect the focus, funding, and nature of the social welfare systems serving tribal communities. In presenting these trends, we hope to frame and give context to a discussion about future policy options for the design, scope, and offerings of Indian Country’s social welfare systems. Our particular suggestion is that the discussion focus five years down the road – far enough in the future to move beyond the present focus on reauthorization yet close enough in time to set realistic goals for program development and change.
