Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Social workers accuse Indian affairs office CALGARY (CP) The Canadian Association of Social Workers accused the Department of Indian Affairs (DIA) office here Friday of practicing racism and of violating standards of profes- sional social work in its treat- ment of native peoples. The accusation is contained in a report drafted by the association and a committee representing the Canadian Mental Health Association, the Canadian Civil Liberties Union, Calgary Local Council of Women, and the University of Calgary social welfare and anthropology facilities. The investigation was re- quested by the Calgary Urban Treaty Indian Alliance, which has been involved in a running battle with the DIA office over treatment afforded urban Indians since it was formed two years ago. The alliance most recently asked the American Indian Movement (AIM) to lead a ripmonstration and two-day occupation of the DIA office. Ed Burnstick, Canadian Di- rector of AIM, and Alliance president Roy Littlechief, were to surrender to police Friday to face charges of mis- chief in connection with that incident. The report says "in the Cal- gary office there is an increasing atmosphere of treating Indian clients as inferior human beings." "What is happening in the Calgary office is intolerable by any human standard. "Power is being abused by civil servants." The report said Indian Af- fairs policies are being designed by "carefully selected civil servants capable of maintaining a colonial policy." The chiefs of four southern Alberta Indian tribes are to meet with Indian Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan next week to discuss the problems affecting urban Indians in Calgary."
