Excerpt from An Analysis of Sources of Information on the Population of the Navaho

There has been no standardized definition Of Indian suitable for all purposes. It is quite evident that several ideas are involved in this word. There is the idea of biological descent or degree Of blood as a definite something which makes a person an Indian. This something would be generally based on personal appearance plus local records such as the reservation or tribal roll containing the name of the person and his degree Of blood or those of his parents or other relatives. Further, there is the cultural element, illustrated in the ability to speak an Indian language or by the person's participating in the customs and culture of some recognized Indian group, such as Indian arts and crafts or taking an active part in the tribal ceremonies. Finally, there is the legal Indian who is owner or part owner Of restricted property and a member of some tribal group holding such property.
