REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Window Rock, Arizona) Indian protest did nothing but call attention to BIA building damage, not to Indian problems. [Navajo tribal chairperson Peter MacDONALD - says Congress not interested in plight of Indians; not looking at cause of BIA occupation.] On reservation, 65% unemployment, high infant mortality, suicide, and alcoholism rates, bad health facilities, inadequate schools etc.
