The National Indian Affairs Council, an organization dedicated to helping American Indians living off reservations, held its annual conference in Washington DC. The panel entitled, “1992 and Beyond,” addressed issues facing American Indians living off reservations, such as the relationship of tribes to American Indian urban centers and the use of the upcoming quincentennial of the landing of Columbus in America in 1992 to further the agenda of American Indians. Sen. Inouye explained legislation currently being considered by Congress concerning American Indians, including the 1991 Crime bill which originally would have made the death penalty mandatory for certain crimes in all 50 states, including Indian reservations without consultation with Indian leaders. He voiced optimism for favorable consideration of issues concerning American Indians because of the increase of the number of members of the Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs. close
